Sauteed Mushrooms Over Rice

It doesn't get much simpler than this. The recipe, while it may sound bland or overly easy, is actually quite tasty and flavorful...a nice snack or side dish on a cold day.

What you will need:
Mushrooms (whatever you like...I prefer portobellos)
Butter, margarine, or cooking oil
Rice (again, whatever floats your boat. Basmati is my favorite)
Gravy (optional, but recommended)

Follow the directions for making rice. While it is cooking, slice your mushrooms and put them in a pan with butter. Season and salt to taste; sautee until soft. Plate rice, add mushrooms on top. Serve and om nom nom. Add gravy for a truly flavorful dish.


  1. I make this as a side dish for my family, but I've never added any gravy. Something new for next time :)

  2. I don't like mushrooms but it seems like its a pretty big part of this meal, too bad.. D=

  3. Brown gravy? Turkey gravy? I think the lighter of the two would work, so you didn't cover up the flavor of the shrooms...

  4. Can't believe I never thought of this...must try!

  5. I may just try making a vegan version of this! :)

  6. Mushrooms are great!! I am going to end up having a LOT of recipes to try after reading this blog for a while...

  7. Morel season is fast approaching! This sounds like a good way to enjoy them without burying them in other flavors. I like to mix a little red quinoa in with my basmati rice, just boil or steam it all together.
