From Australian Super Food Ideas May 2007. Make a great light meal. Suggested if serving to children omit chilli powder and adults could add tabasco or hot chilli sauce. Times are estimated.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon chili powder (mexican optional, see introduction)
- 1 cup long grain rice (rinsed)
- 2 cups vegetable stock (or chicken if not doing vegetarian)
- 270 g corn kernels (can, drained)
- 4 large mushrooms (flat or fields)
- 1 large avocado (mashed)
- 2 spring onions (scallions sliced)
- 1 cup tasty cheese (grated)
- 1⁄4 cup coriander leaves (cilantro)
- Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius.
- Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, add chilli powder (if using) and then add rice, cook stirring, for 1 minute and then add stock. Cover and bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and cook for a further 10 minutes or until all stock is nearly all absorbed.
- Remove pan from heat, add corn and cover and stand for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, wipe mushrooms with paper towels and trim the stems.
- Place on an oven tray, bake for 10 minutes or until tender.
- Spoon avocado onto stem side of mushrooms, sprinkle with spring onions and cheese.
- Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese just melts.
- Stir rice with a fork to separate the grains. Add coriander and season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.
- Spoon rice onto plates and top with mushrooms or serve mushrooms to side of rice.
This was nice recipe, slightly different, enjoyed the mushrooms and rice combination, add in avocado and cheese and it is a perfect combination.
This was great! It was so easy to make, tasted delicious, and was light but satisfying. The rice was soooo good! I used portabello mushrooms. The peel was a little tough. Next time I think I will grill or broil the mushrooms with some pam and salt and pepper to give it better texture (or peel it).
