Ordinary rice gets a kick from mushrooms and pesto - perfect served alongside beef or roasted chicken.

The first rice dish I've had in a long time to surprise me - wonderfully different, with great fresh basil and corn taste in every bite. I would dice the mushrooms small next time, for more uniformity, but other than that, no complaints. Works just as well with beef or chicken. I also recommend adding black beans or cubed tofu to make the rice a main dish.
