Mushroom Wild Rice

Wild Mushroom Rice
Written by Kate thecook

Mushroom Wild Rice is a simple recipe that is the perfect accompaniment to so many dishes. I have used this as a side dish or part of main dish.  I have served this with dishes such as Beef Burgundy, Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Cacciatore to great success. Including mushrooms, onions and garlic powder adds so much flavour with little effort. However, when roughly chopped pecans are included, this recipe heads to a new direction. Using wild rice gives the entire dish a lovely base flavour, texture and colour that compliments the other ingredients. I normally use plain mushrooms but you can use chestnut, button, plain, shitake or any others that you like.
