This recipe turned out to be delicious! I used fresh mushrooms, added a bit of salt at the end, and more parmesan cheese. The family, especially my boyfriend, loved it. The consistency was very close to risotto, so I was impressed with how easy it was!
This dish was good, but ultimately too salty. The amount of parmesan cheese was overwhelming to the other flavors. I added additional vegetables and used fresh mushrooms. Thanks for the post.
First I need to say that I used regular Basmati rice and it took 25 mins start to finish. I used fat free coffee creamer to replace the heavy cream to cut back on the fat. The rice still had a rich flavor it not the liquid creaminess of arborio risotto. The garlic powder really filled out the flavor. I made this to go along with pork chops in mushroom sauce and they made a perfect pair. Made for Photo Tag.
This was quick and surprisingly good - using instant rice ! Have always used arborio, and simmered a long time. Made 1/2 recipe for 2 of us, and have some left for lunch. The small amount of cream and parmesan gave a smooth and pleasant taste. Thanks, DuChick, for an any-night tasty side for "Sea Bass With Artichokes and Balsamic Vinegar" !
