I call this invented because I came up with it in about ten minutes while trying to figure out what to eat for dinner. It's very quick and easy and I think the tomatoes and garlic are what really add the flavour to this dish.

Directions

  1. Heat butter in a large saucepan on a medium heat and add the onions.
  2. When the onions begin to become transparent, add the mushrooms, garlic and chicken stock.
  3. Add the cooked rice and salt.
  4. Sautee the rice for about 7 minutes, stirring frequently until the chicken stock is absorbed.
  5. Add the tomatoes, basil and oregano and cook another 10 minutes on medium-low heat.
  6. Serve as a perfect side dish to grilled chicken.

I liked this a lot. I used it as a base recipe to make a risotto, actually. I didn't have any mushrooms but I made it with calamari instead. So it became a main dish versus a side dish. Works very well with calamari!
