Wild Rice with Cremini Mushrooms

Wild Rice with Cremini Mushrooms

Elevate plain rice to something a little more special with the help of just a few ingredients. If you don't have a wild rice blend, or are short on time, substitute three cups of cooked instant rice. Serve with pork loin, beef tenderloin, duck, or chicken.

  • 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


1. Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Stir in sherry and salt; cover and keep warm.

2. Heat butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Stir in rice mixture, parsley, and pepper.
