Brown Rice Mushroom Pilaf
This is one of my favorite dishes. I love everything about it, texture, flavors, you name it. It is so simple and yet so tasty. I usually eat this with a big bunch of chopped parsley on top because I’m such a parsley lover and this combination seems perfect to me.

Cook time: 40 min
- 1 large onion, chopped

- 2 cups water
- sea salt, to taste
- 1/3 tsp ground pepper
- 1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Sauté chopped onion and sliced mushrooms for 5 minutes.
- 2. Add brown rice and stir to coat in oil.
- 3. Add water.
- 4. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and cover with a lid. Let it rest until all liquid is absorbed.
