Description

The Holidays are upon us and with them comes the perpetual question: "How do I keep this interesting? How do I make this dinner different than every other year?". But then I asked my self : "Do I really HAVE to?" . A simple quick and easy onion and mushroom rice is always a crowd pleaser.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 tbsp avocado or grape seed oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 10oz crimini (baby bella) mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp all natural onion dip mix (here we used Trader Joe's brand)
  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 3 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 3/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate seeds ( about 1 small pomegranate)
  • 1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a deep skillet (chose one that has a lid). Add onions and cook over medium high heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently
  2. Add mushrooms salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes or until all the water from the mushroom has evaporated. Add rice, water, or broth, and onion soup mix and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 25 minutes
  3. Remove rice from heat and let it stand for 10-15 minutes with the lid on
  4. Right before serving, add parsley, pomegranate and sunflower seeds and toss well
