Monday nights in the summer we enjoy Jazz at the Zoo, a free concert series.
Once a month our group has a potluck. This morning when I stopped at the grocery store I remembered I need to bring something, so in my mind I quick whipped something together and bought the ingredients. It was very easy to make and only cost around $6. This is definitely a recipe I want to make again, and would even make a great lunch for work!
Rosemary Brown Rice
- 1 cup uncooked brown rice (soaked)
- 1 T fresh rosemary (do not skimp on this one, trust me), chopped
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces (or chopped)
- 1/2 pound mushrooms (I used baby bella)
Cook rice according to directions; add rosemary and pecans during the last 5 minutes.
Set aside to cool (which will help the stickiness) and sauté' the mushrooms.
Saute' mushrooms in a little olive oil until they start to turn brown; add to the rice mixture.
This is a great dish because it can sit out and there won't be concern regarding spoilage.
I also think sautéing a little red onion with this would be good. I'll try that next time!
