This delicious blend of mushrooms, sautéed onions and garlic, and long-grain brown rice make a splendid dish of tasty risotto. Slightly stickier than traditional brown rice, this is one pot of scrumptiousness.

Difficulty: Medium

Hands-on: 30 minutesTotal: 30 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 113 cups long-grain brown rice
  • 3¾ cups water
  • 6 cups baby portabella mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning

Directions

  • Drizzle the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and sauté the minced onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the uncooked rice to the saucepan and turn to coat in the oil, garlic, and onions. Stir over heat for 2 minutes. Add the water, mushrooms, and seasonings to the saucepan, and stir to combine.
