Brown Rice Pilaf

Since I was using my pressure cooker already for the meat, I decided to just cook the rice on the stove. lt had been a long time since I had done that. I was very pleased with the results. It turned out very light, it was a wonderful pilaf. This too was a popular item. (Like the roast yesterday) I think only about 1 cup was left.
I served this with the roast I posted yesterday. It makes a great combo.

2 1/2 C brown rice
5 C water
1 small can of chopped mushrooms or fresh
2-3 minced garlic
1 T thyme
1/2 T butter
1 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste after it is cooked.


1. Pour water into pan. Pour in the rice. Bring to boil.

2. While the water is preparing to boil, get a small frying pan. Pour olive oil and mushrooms and garlic into pan. Saute for a couple minutes.

3. Then when water boils add the mushroom mixture, and butter. Stir and let cook on med. to low heat. (You can add another 1/4 to 1/2 C water if it is too dry before it is done. It is done when it fluffs up, and nice and tender.

*I have been happy with the Lundberg Family Rice brand.

* I had leftovers for lunch today and mixed it with a bunch of vegetables. Still very light and good.
