Found a new favourite recipe thanks to a suggestion from David at Coast Mushroom! Mixed bag of mushrooms+rice=delicious,brag worthy dinner.
- 1 cup mixed mushrooms
- 2 cups rice (180 ml per cup)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp soya sauce
- 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 green onions, chopped
- Separate mushrooms into pieces. Slice thinly.
- Wash rice and put in the rice cooker’s removable bowl. Add salt, soy sauce, rice vinegar and stir. Add enough water to reach the line for 2 cups of rice, and then add mushrooms. Cook like white rice (according to the rice cooker instructions).
- After the rice is done, mix in green onions.
- Enjoy! And don’t tell anyone how easy it was to make:)
