  4. In a medium sauce pan, coated with the olive oil spray, saute the chopped onion over medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add the brown rice, chicken broth and raisins, bring to a boil, and then cover, and reduce heat for 6 - 8 minutes, (check package instructions for best results, rice should be fork tender).
