1/2 c Wild rice; rinsed in a sieve
1 1/2 oz Dried porcini
1 c Hot water
1 3/4 c Cold water
1 c Long-grain brown rice
1 ts Salt
1 c Onions; chopped
3 tb Unsalted butter
1 1/2 c Chopped fresh parsley

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



To a small saucepan of boiling water add the wild rice, remove the pan from the heat, and let the rice soak for 30 minutes. In a small bowl combine the porcini and the hot water and let the mushrooms soak for 30 minutes.

Strain the mixture through a rinsed and squeezed paper towel set over a measuring cup, reserving 3/4 cup of the soaking liquid, wash the porcini under cold water to remove any grit, and chop them. In a large saucepan bring the cold water and the porcini soaking liquid to a boil, stir in the wild rice, drained well, the brown rice, and the salt, and simmer the mixture, covered for about 40 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. While the rice is cooking, in a large skillet cook the onion in the butter over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until it is softened and stir in the porcini.

Add the rice to the skillet with the parsley and salt and pepper to taste and combine the mixture well. Serves 6.

I liked this a lot but my husband didn't care much for it for some reason.

This is an easy way to dress up plain brown rice. The only change I made was subbing fat-free, low sodium chicken broth for the water to cook the brown rice in. Went well with a chicken breast and buttered carrots. Will be making this again.
