Rice with mushrooms, garlic, onion - who could beat that? My family loves this recipe! You can also use it as a main meal if you add cooked chicken after the rice is cooked. This recipe works equally well with white or brown rice, instant or otherwise. It always comes out delicious!

This is really, really good. But I have one suggestion that will improve it a great deal. I never cook white rice, so I can't speak knowledgeably about it. But, if you use BROWN rice, try soaking the rice in water for about 20 minutes before cooking (be sure to drain it), then cook the rice in plain water with just a little oil or butter and NO salt (or chicken broth with NO SALT CONTENT). The rice will cook faster and turn out MUCH softer and plumper with presoaking and without the salt. To get that chicken broth flavor, you can add chicken bouillon after the rice is cooked. Brown rice cooked in a salty liquid just doesn't ever get really done. Read More

Use Crimini mushrooms (Baby Portabello's) and beef broth...Double up on the amount of mushrooms...Vegetable broth can also be used....Top w/ grated parmesean cheese just before serving and sprinkled with some snipped chives. Read More

Excellent! Just pay attention to the rice/lquid ratio. 1 to 1 for minute rice or 1 to 2 for long cooking rice. Read More

This is a yummy recipe.. turns out great everytime... i use my rice cooker to cook this and i find that the broth - rice ratio should be 1:1, especially if using white rice (i use basmati). I have cooked this several times when i have had unexpected guests and it turns out great... Read More

Let's just put it this way...I served this to accompany some beautiful veal chops and I could have eaten the whole darn pan...of this rice. (I didn't but that's because I restrained myself) Rather than sauteing the green onion I used red...and added the parsley and some chopped green onion just before serving - and most likely more butter. I'd love to try this with dried porcini mushrooms using the soaking liquid from the mushrooms to cook the rice. It's a simple name for a simple rice side dish but it should not be underestimated.

Thanks for the inspiration for tonites dinner. I just finished making the best mushroom rice ever and hubby said the greens i made to go with it were not even needed. I started off by using about 2 tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of oil and I sauteed about 20 small button mushrooms maybe more thinly sliced, 5 cloves of garlic thinly sliced, 2 spring onion and 1 medium onion cut in half and thinly sliced, few sprigs of thyme because I love it, a teaspoon or so of dried oregano a teaspoon or more of salt and a few dash of worchestishire sauce for about 15 min until the mushrooms were really soft and dark brown. I then added the rice and cooked the rice in the mushrooms for about 10 min max stiring a lot to avoid it sticking over medium heat. Then I added beef stock to get the added brown colour and taste. YUMMY! I let the liquid come to a boil then i put on the lid and put the heat on low and then once the rice was still firm but all the water was absorbed i took the lid off and took the pot off the heat so that the rice wouldnt over cook while it cooled down a bit. So excited for left overs tomorrow, i wanted to lick the pot when it was done it was good. Read More

This rice was really good - I served it for company and it was real easy to make and much better than plain rice. If you use long-grain rice, it is only 1 cup rice to 2 cups broth. Read More

WE LOVED IT! After the first review I was kinda leary but it worked out great for me. I had a box of Rice A Roni on hand (just in case) and it was put back into the pantry. My 15 month old soveled it in! I used Minute Rice & cut the cook time down kinda like you would with Minute Rice & it did not turn out dry at all. Thank you Jennifer! Read More
