Mushroom rice is a really hearty dish. It’s so filling, it just sticks to your ribs. So comforting and delicious!
Mushroom rice can be served as a side dish or a main dish. Mushrooms are full of protein, so mushroom rice is actually a complete vegan meal that will leave you stuffed. But it can also be used as a side with other delicious dishes – it goes well with any savory foods!
Mushroom rice has extremely deep flavor because the rice is cooked together with the mushrooms, so the flavors really blend together. If you cooked the rice and the mushrooms separately and just mixed it together, the flavor wouldn’t be quite the same!
Making mushroom rice is really easy. First you pan-fry the sliced mushrooms and onions, then add rice and water to them and cook the rice as usual! When the rice finishes cooking, it’s flavored with mushrooms and tastes so good!
You can make mushroom rice with white or brown rice, just cook that rice the same way you always cook it, except add mushrooms to it! You can also use any type of rice cooking method, such as rice cooker or even microwave! See my instructions for perfect rice cooker brown rice and rice cooker white rice.
If you are using a rice cooker to make mushroom rice, first cook mushrooms and onions in a frying pan, then transfer them to the rice cooker, add rice and water, close the rice cooker and press the Cook button. When the timer beeps, mushroom rice is ready!
