¼ cup chopped red pepper
¼ cup chopped red onion
4 crimini mushroom, chopped
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup raw brown rice
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (or 2 teaspoons dried)
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter with olive oil over medium-high heat. Reduce head to medium and add red pepper, onion, and mushrooms and saute, just until tender. Stir in the rice and saute for 2 minutes to provide a nutty flavor, add the broth, and season with pepper, to taste. Increase to medium-high heat to bring to a boil, and then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Add fresh parsley, fluff the rice with a fork, and serve – Enjoy!
