Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Wild Rice Recipe

August 19th, 2013 by alice  Tags: , , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 1largeonion, finely chopped to taste
  2. 10-12mushrooms, coarsely chopped, to taste
  3. 1tablespoonbutter
  4. 1tablespoonolive oil
  5. 1cupraw wild rice
  6. 3 1/4cupswater, plus
  7. 1 1/2beef bouillon cubes or3 1/4 cups saltedbeef broth
  8. 1/4teaspoonfresh ground pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large saucepan, saute the onion in the butter and olive oil at medium heat until lightly browned and beginning to caramelize; add the mushrooms and saute another 5- 10 minutes until they have released their juices; then add the wild rice and saute another 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the water, bouillion cubes, and pepper, stir a bit, bring to a boil, cover, turn heat down to low and simmer for 45- 60 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the rice is quite tender.
  3. Check after 45 minutes; if it appears too dry, you may need to add 1/4 cup water; if too wet, cook uncovered for the remaining 15 minutes.
  4. This recipe is also quite good without mushrooms, provided you use at least 2 onions and add 1- 2 cloves of garlic (add garlic at the same time as the wild rice).
