Homemade Rice a-Roni with Mushrooms- 02/20/10
Rice-a-Roni is a combination of rice an thin pasta. You can buy Rice a-Roni in any supermarket but tonight I am making it from scratch. It is actually very easy to make and I like the combination of rice and pasta because it is more interesting than just rice alone. I added mushrooms because I just happened to have some in the fridge but it is optional.
Rice a-Roni is a step up from regular rice. It has more flavors and it goes well with any meat.
Close look at the dish.
Here I am serving the Rice a-Roni with Poulet en Demi-Deuil (Truffled Chicken).
I don't really have a specific recipe for this dish but these are the ingredients:
Rice, pasta roni
Mushroom, any kind you have in hand
Salt and pepper
sauté the garlic and onion in an hot pan with oil until the onion and garlice are caramelized
Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté until the mushrooms are soft ....
...and they have released their juices. Set them aside.
Next, using the same pan, add some oil and butter and sauté the rice and pasta until golden .
Once the pasta and rice have reached the desired color....
Add chicken stock to the rice, or water is you do not have chicken broth. Add the mushroom back to the pan. Turn down the heat to low, cover the pan and let it simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the rice is cooked.
Once the rice is cooked and a teaspoon of butter and let it melt into the rice. Sprinkle a few cut green onion on top of the rice and it is ready to be served..
