Vegetable broth, garlic, mushrooms, and a bit of scallion make this brown rice side dish a treat in its own right, and not just a bed of grain for other dishes.
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1½ cups brown rice (see Note following recipe box), rinsed
  • 32-ounce carton low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 8 ounces brown mushrooms (baby bella — aka cremini or shiitake, or a combination)
  • 2 to 3 cloves scallions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, optional
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat until golden, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and broth. Bring to a slow boil.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms, then lower the heat and simmer gently until the broth is absorbed, about 30 minutes. If the rice isn’t tender to your liking, add ½ cup water and simmer until absorbed.
  4. Stir in the scallions and season gently with salt and pepper (or omit). Let the rice stand off the heat, covered for 10 minutes or so before serving.
  5. Note: Try fragrant brown Basmati, which makes it extra tasty. Though any long- or medium grain variety, or even an exotic rice blend, work well.
