Brown Rice Mushroom Pilaf

Ingredients

1 large onion, chopped
1 cup brown rice
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (I used small-size champignons; don’t use canned mushrooms because they’re absolutely tasteless.)
1 tbsp unrefined sunflower oil
2 cups water
sea salt, to taste
1/3 tsp ground pepper

Preparation

1
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté chopped onion and sliced mushrooms for 5 minutes.
2
Add brown rice and stir to coat in oil.
3
Add water.
4
Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and cover with a lid. Let it rest until all liquid is absorbed.

About

This is one of my favorite dishes. I love everything about it, texture, flavors, you name it. It is so simple and yet so tasty. I usually eat this with a big bunch of chopped parsley on top because I’m such a parsley lover and this combination seems perfect to me.
