Sauteed leek and shiitake mushrooms along with toasted pecans lend additional flavor and crunch to this quick side dish of Brown Rice Pilaf with Pecans.
1 (8.8-ounce) package precooked whole-grain brown rice blend (such as Uncle Ben's)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 thinly sliced leek (white and light green parts only)
2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons chopped toasted pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Heat whole-grain brown rice blend according to the package directions. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat.
