Mushroom and Dill Pilaf

Once in a while I get amazed with the recipes I come up with- yes, I realize that is not very modest of me.. its a good thing I really like myself.

I digress- this is a delicious rice dish with mushrooms.. it can be a side dish or the star.. either way, its a winner!

Green Sauce

  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup dill, chopped
  • 4 green onions
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves

Add the cilantro, dill, green onions and garlic to a processor. Process till smooth. Keep aside.

  • 2 tablespoons extra light olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 1 10 oz pack of Cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1½ cups basmati rice
  • 3 cups mushroom or chicken broth
  • Salt

Heat a wide saucepan with the olive oil. Add the cumin seeds and the green sauce. Saute on medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add the rice and sauté on medium heat for a minute. Add the broth and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Cover with lid and lower the heat and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.
