To make this mushroom rice, 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.

If you like the combo of mushrooms with rice then you can make few mushroom rice recipes like:

  1. Mushroom pulao
  2. Ambur biryani – with mushrooms
  3. Mushroom fried rice
  4. Mushroom biryani

This mushroom rice 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.

Tips for making mushroom rice

  1. Its easy if you have leftover rice or else you will have to cook the rice.
  2. If you do not have crushed sesame seeds, then you could also use whole sesame seeds. Roast them and add to the rice.
  3. You could use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs.
  4. You can also use other varieties of mushrooms or mixed mushrooms. This will give a nice texture and crunchiness to the recipe.
