"This version of mushroom rice pilaf uses fresh mushrooms, not canned. Add garlic if you like."

1 1/3 cups

This turned out to be an unexpected surprise, much better and certainly more memorable, than I thought it would be. However, I bumped up the flavor by using fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, using shitake mushrooms, chicken base rather than bouillon, and a good glug of white wine. I skipped the salt, which wasn’t necessary because of the bouillon or chicken base. This was excellent, actually. And elegant.
We loved the mushrooms, but the rice itself was a bit bland.
This was very good rice, but then I love mushrooms! I wish I would have seen the line at the end of the recipe that I could have added garlic to it because that would have been a nice touch. I followed the recipe except to use the red, yellow, and orange peppers rather than the green pepper called for. Thank you for a nice side dish!
We loved this! I omitted the green pepper (didn't have any), and added garlic in with the mushroom/onion mixture. Great combo of flavors...I will be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Excellent recipe! I added some chopped celery and red bell pepper as well as the mushrooms and green pepper.
I too enjoyed this recipe greatly!: although I have substituted celery for the bell pepper every time I've made this pilaf. The instruction to add garlic seemed unnecessary as garlic powder is already called for, I did however omit the powder in favour of one clove of fresh. This is a great accompaniment to many a meal!! Thanks for this versatile recipe!
my boyfriend absolutely loved this! I didn't have green pepper and followed others' advice and added some garlic. This is a nice change from plain rice and as my boyfriend said "a definite keeper!"
I tried the recipe and and loved it! The one thing I did different that was instead of water i used chicken broth. It was great! I told everyone how good and easy it was! BeeHam46
