Ingredients

  • 3-4 cups rice medley cooked
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup about 1 large carrot, cut in small cubes
  • 1 small white onion minced
  • 8 oz pkg mushrooms sliced (or more if you love mushrooms like I do)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter use olive oil if dairy-free is needed.
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, finely grated if dairy-free, skip this and add 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast.

Instructions

  • Cook the wild rice by following the instructions on the package. I cook mine with a 1:2 ratio. For 1 cup, I use 2 cups of water.
  • Heat a large pot on medium heat with olive oil. Cook carrots for about 1 minute then add onion and mushrooms. Cook until tender. It will take about 1-2 minutes.
  • Now add butter and let it melt. Add thyme, parsley, oregano and stir.
  • Pour vegetable broth and bring to a simmer. Turn to low heat and let cook for 2 minutes.
  • Pour in coconut milk and add parmesan. Stir to combine.
  • Add rice, stir, then turn to medium heat. Bring to a simmer until hot and switch off the heat. Serve immediately.

Notes

sometimes I skip making the wild rice in this recipe and use one of those rice blends that come in pouches and can be made in the microwave. You know? I usually use 2 of them. I love the rice blend versions for this recipe.
