Mushroom-Onion Wild Rice

I made this last night! I forgot to use chicken broth instead of water so I added an extra 1/2 cup of rice and 1 cup broth to the original recipe. This recipe is a variation of the mushroom and rice recipes that call for fresh thyme and butter.



  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 box mixed mushrooms, rinsed and diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/8 cup chopped chives
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme (or less)
  • 2 cups wild rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup chicken broth


In a deep skillet over medium heat, sauté the mushrooms and onions in olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, minced garlic, and chives. Stir. Add the rice, water, chicken broth, and dried thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed.
