One Pot Mushroom & Rice Dish

A blend of mushrooms, carrots and onions are sautéed in olive oil and then combined with rice and water for an easy one pot dish. The results are tasty and fluffy!

 I have been really liking the texture of jasmine rice lately; semi-sticky yet some what whole grainy rice makes for an amazing texture. The key to a good textured rice is to be careful not to add too much water or over stirring hot steaming rice as that can result in a mushy mess. My mother-in-law happened to discover this recipe from an old english cook book and  we have been making this tasty rice meal ever since. Believe me when I say the amount of oil is not overpowering. I was honestly intimated by the amount (1 cup) when I first discovered this recipe but after proven trials of this dish coming out delicious, that all dis appeared. So no worries there is no oil residual taste what so ever. Im not sure what the oil does but this rice is super fluffy and delicious.

    1. Thanks Natasha, yes just add raw rinsed rice. The rice will cook along with the liquids and veggies:)
