Here’s an easy and quick recipe of mushroom rice. this mushroom rice recipe i had made for lunch and everyone liked it.

the most amazing thing is that, it is not an elaborate or complicated recipe. easy for bachelors, students and single people. if you have leftover rice than you could use it right away to make this recipe.

i have only used the following veggies – mushrooms, garlic, scallions in this recipe plus dried herbs and seeds like oregano, thyme and crushed sesame seeds. but you could use other dried herbs like rosemary, parsley, sage or whatever you are fond of. this recipe is a completely vegan recipe. so my vegan friends can enjoy making this one.

this mushroom rice recipe is more european style than chinese or indian style. its not all spicy but yet flavorful and tasty. if you need some spice in the rice, you could add tobasco sauce or paprika or more of black pepper.

Notes
