Long Grain and Wild Rice with Mushrooms and Shallots

I wanted to make a quick and easy side dish to serve with the chicken I was making for dinner. I grabbed a box mix of wild rice and decided to kick it up a notch. I sautéed some mushrooms and shallots then topped them off with a bit of butter and soy sauce before mixing them and some fresh parsley in with the prepared wild rice mix. This dish couldn’t have been easier to make and the added mushroom and shallots made the rice taste so much better!

Prepare the rice per instructions.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the mushrooms then leave them alone for 3-4 minutes before flipping them with a spatula; add the shallots and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes. Add the butter and soy sauce to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Once the rice has finished cooking, mix in the mushroom mixture and most of the parsley then gently fluff with a fork to combine the mixture.  Sprinkle the top with the last bit of parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
