Heat butter in a small saucepan. Add onion or shallots, and apple, cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Add cooked broccoli, rice and broth, cover and simmer 5 minutes to reheat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve as is, or better yet, puree in blender. If thick, thin with water; adjust seasoning.
