Recipe Of Mushroom Rice

As a mushroom enthusiast and someone who loves experimenting in the kitchen, I’ve always been a fan of mushroom rice. This dish brings together the earthy flavors of mushrooms with the comforting goodness of rice, creating a satisfying and flavorful meal that’s perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re a vegetarian looking for a hearty dish or simply a fan of mushrooms, this recipe is sure to become a staple in your cooking repertoire.


  • 2 cups of white or brown rice
  • 1 pound of mixed mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster), cleaned and sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of vegetable or mushroom broth
  • 1/4 cup of white wine (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by rinsing the rice under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch for a fluffier end result.
  2. In a large pan or pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté until they are soft and translucent.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and cook until they are tender and caramelized. This brings out their rich, nutty flavor.
  4. Once the mushrooms are cooked, add the rice to the pan and stir to coat it with the flavorful mushroom and onion mixture.
  5. If using white wine, pour it into the pan and simmer until it has been absorbed by the rice.
  6. Next, gradually add the vegetable or mushroom broth to the rice, one cup at a time, stirring frequently. Allow the broth to be absorbed before adding more.
  7. Cover the pan with a lid and let the rice simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until it’s tender and has absorbed all the liquid.
  8. Once the rice is cooked, fluff it with a fork and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Garnish the mushroom rice with fresh parsley before serving.

Tips for Perfection:

If you’re feeling adventurous, consider adding a splash of soy sauce or a sprinkle of thyme to elevate the flavors of your mushroom rice. You can also toss in some peas or diced carrots for added color and nutrients. Personally, I love experimenting with different mushroom varieties to create unique flavor profiles in my dish.


Whether it’s a quick weeknight dinner or a special gathering with friends, mushroom rice is a versatile and delicious dish that never fails to impress. The earthy aroma of mushrooms combined with the simplicity of rice makes this recipe a winner in my book. I hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy the delightful flavors as much as I do!
