This very simple to throw together rice dish is stress-free since it’s baked up in the oven. I’ve been making this recipe for dinner since 2007. Truth be told: sometimes I eat this baked mushroom rice for dinner all on its own without a main dish! Mushroom lovers will really enjoy this one.

How to make Baked Mushroom Rice:

You will sauté green onions and mushrooms in a buttered skillet, and then you’ll add in chicken broth, sherry, salt and pepper. That’s simmered until the mushrooms have softened a bit. Then that mixture is poured over uncooked rice in a casserole dish. The dish is then covered, and the rice is baked for 25 minutes.

What kind of rice should you buy for this recipe?

Use any kind of rice that says on the bag that it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to cook. This can be a Jasmine rice or a plain, long-grain white rice. Don’t use wild rice or any kind of long-cooking rice for this recipe.

Is there a substitute for sherry?

Sherry is what gives this baked mushroom rice its unique and delicious flavor. You should be able to find cooking sherry near the vinegar in your local market. If you don’t like to cook with alcohol (or if you simply don’t want to use it), just add in another 1/2 cup of chicken broth in place of the sherry.
