Oven Mushroom Rice

This is a nice change from just a simple rice. You can stick it in the oven and forget it while you are preparing the rest of the meal, or cook it stove top, either way works. This isn't a dry rice, it is moist and a bit sticky.

  • 1 cup of brown rice (or white)
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/4 tsp. sage
  • 1/4 tsp. basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (I add about 2 cups because we don't like a dry rice)
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 can of mushroom with the liquid
  • fresh parsley (I didn't have any this time)
  • Or if you prefer fresh mushrooms, just cook them with the onion and add another 1/2 cup water or broth
  1. Saute the onion (and fresh mushrooms if using) in the butter, combine remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  2. Put in a greased casserole dish for 45 minutes in a 350 oven.
  3. Or just make it on the stove top in the pot and simmer for 25 minutes if using white rice or 45 minutes if using brown rice. Do not let pot get too dry, add liquid as necessary.


  1. This will be one I will try the next time I want a rie dish.

  2. This looks delicious. I am wondering what I can use to substitute soy sauce. I get headaches from soy sauce. Maybe I should use balsamic vinegar or something.


  3. That looks really good. I make a tasty dish using barley and mushrooms which is very similar. I am going to give the rice version a try next time I make it!

  4. Now that is definitely a yummy recipe! I will be trying this one one night this week!

    This is for Shoshanna (comment above). My friend had the same problem with soy sauce. She switched to tamari sauce, and no more headaches, Might be worth a try...

  5. I like the oven option. This sounds like a great combination of goodies :0)

  6. This looks and sounds delicious. It's perfect for fall too.

  7. This is off the topic.....but...I'm making Charlotte's Maple Twists right now. I don't think my streusel turned out right. It was one big clump, and hard to spread. Not going to be as pretty as the picture I can already tell. The dough was very easy to work with, however, and so far it has been fun to make..........

  8. We eat a lot of rice, so I'm always searching for new rice recipes and this looks like an excellent one. Thank you for sharing.

  9. This was very good! I even featured it on my blog. Thanks for sharing your recipes!

  10. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I'm always looking for tasty ways to cook brown rice. I added a little cooked, crumbled bacon and slivered almonds that I needed to use before they went to waste. Lovely!
