Brown rice & Mushroom Casserole Recipe:
The last two days have been busy & yummy, all the work around setting up my blog (it’s still far from the way I want it to look- but I am working on itJ ) has kept me binging on tasty but unhealthy snacks, and to top it up was my lavish Saturday Night Indulgence. All the oil & spice that I’ve been eating for the last two days has left my stomach calling for something milder & and easy to digest.
I know our Indian ‘Khichdi’ (Rice & lentils savory Porridge) would have perfectly served the purpose but my active taste buds always wants to be pampered. I also wanted to pick something that’s fast and easy to cook. Unable to decide I just opened my refrigerator and the first thing that struck my eyes was a pack of “button mushrooms” and next followed the stack of different cheeses. The decision was made, I was going to do my version of a “Rice & Mushroom Casserole”.While looking for my regular rice canister through the shelves what came to my hand first was the brown rice canister and my dinner menu was revised one final time to “Brown rice & Mushroom Casserole”
This style of cooking rice with chicken or mushroom or any other accompaniment must be inspired by the Italian “risotto” I think.. Well that’s just a guess I am no expert I confess.
This is how my Brown rice & Mushroom casserole looked like:
