Baked Mushroom Rice


Even though I created a meal plan weekly. I was perplexed about what to make for dinner the other day. I went to the store several times and was so caught up on the 90% off after Halloween sale at Target that I forgot all about going to the store and making sure what I picked up the items needed for the menu plan. When Wednesday came around I refused to go to the store. I looked at what I had on hand and the magic started to happen. I wanted to make fish. However, we were all out of flavored rice and the mister loves having dinner with rice. (if you already haven't noticed from my weekly menu plan. )I remembered seeing a video on Facebook. However, wasn't sure if I was going to make it because I really suck at making homemade rice. It's really hit or miss with me. When most times it's a miss. 

I ended up deciding to give this recipe a try and boy was I happy. Michael loved it. It was super easy to make and since I was making homemade vegan oatmeal raisin cookies. It really came at the perfect time. The rice came out perfect. It honestly would be the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner. I honestly didn't think that my son would it the rice on his plate and he asked for a second plate with just the rice and mushrooms. The Mister raved about delicious the mushrooms were as well. 

I will say that the aroma of this rice had our home smelling amazing! Can't wait to make it again

  11. I love how mushrooms can add so much flavor to a dish, especially something like rice, which doesn't have much taste. Marking this recipe to try.

  13. I am a huge rice fan when it comes to side dishes. I never would have thought to just simply add in mushrooms. Awesome idea!
