What's in it

Ingredients

1 cup diced onion (1/2 of 1 large onion)

2 Tbsp butter

1 garlic clove, minced

8 oz sliced mushrooms

1 cup long grained brown rice

1/2 cup broth (or 1/2 cup
water + 1/2 tsp chicken
bouillon)

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup water

1/3 cup grated Parmesan
cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 Tbsp white wine vinegar

How to cook it

Directions

  • In a microwave safe dish, stir together the onion, butter, garlic, mushrooms, rice and 1/2 cup broth.
  • Microwave for 4 minutes, stirring every 90 seconds.
  • Transfer to a greased slow cooker.
  • Stir in the 2 cups broth and water.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for about 3 hours. (mine took exactly 3 hours...yours may take more or less depending on your slow cooker)
  • Stir in Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste and vinegar.
  • Serve immediately (this tastes best served right away, it doesn't hold up very well on the warm setting)
