Wild Rice with Cremini Mushrooms

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

  • 1 cup uncooked long-grain and wild rice mix
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 4 cups chopped cremini mushrooms (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
