Mimi's Mad About Mushrooms
Make this to serve alongside fresh or sautéed greens. Feel free to play around with different grains, like quinoa and/or millet. Also, it would probably be really delicious and increase the nutritional value if you add in some chopped walnuts.
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2-3 inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
4-5 cups mushrooms, chopped (shiitake works well but use what you like best)
2 ½ cups cooked brown rice
¼ cup soy sauce
4-5 tbsp dried basil
black pepper, to taste
Cook the rice if you don’t have any made already. Sauté the onion over medium heat in a large wok until the onion is caramelized (about 5-10 minutes). Add in the mushrooms and mix in the herbs and soy sauce. Cook until the mushroom reduce and are soft to your liking. Mix in the cooked rice, ginger, garlic, and pepper. Turn off the heat and let the dish sit for about five minutes for the flavours to marry.
