I've been doing a lot of dessert recipes lately. Time for some veggies or main dishes instead. How about mushroom rice? This makes a nice side dish to serve with chicken or fish.
1 1/2 c. sliced mushrooms, about eight medium sized ones
1/4 c. finely diced onion
2 T. butter
1 t. salt
1/2 t. turmeric
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 t. dried parsley
2 c. short grain white or brown rice
4 c. hot water
Sauté mushrooms and onion in butter until softened. Add spices. Stir until blended. Add rice and water. Stir well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until rice is cooked through. This takes about 20 minutes for white rice, 35 for brown. Stir every ten minutes or so to keep the rice from sticking.
