We love rice and any side dish with rice in it is a family favorite. Mushroom rice pilaf is the perfect addition to a main course. I serve this when I make chicken or fish.

I have made this on “Meatless Mondays” as well. I use low-sodium chicken broth and water to cook the rice. I think it adds a nice flavor.

Rice cooking times may vary according to taste preference. I used regular white organic raw mushrooms, but I’ve made this using a combination of mushrooms too.



This is a tasty side dish that takes very little time to prepare. It’s filling, delicious and works well with many meals.
