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.
