Highly recommend this simple rice/mushroom side dish. Awesome flavor! Easy to make. I used fresh shiitake mushrooms. Served with rare roast leg of lamb, Greek salad, fresh garden peas.

Great recipe. Added a handful of fresh parsley and used brown rice, which increased cooking time. A really tasty side dish.
