Basmati rice with mushrooms, broccoli and onion

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil
40 Pearl onions; peeled and ends removed
1 Clove garlic; peeled, minced
2 cups Basmati rice
1 tablespoon Paprika (powdered)
½ cup Dry white wine
6 cups Vegetable stock, hot
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 cups Mushrooms, wild or domestic, sliced
2 cups Broccoli florets, blanched
½ cup Chives (or scallions), diced
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1. In a large non-stick saucepan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions; cook until tender and browned on both sides (about 7 minutes). 2. Add the garlic; cook until it begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the rice; heat until it is toasted and hot. Add the paprika and mix well. Add the white wine and cook until all the liquid is gone, about 3 minutes. Add the hot vegetable stock. Season well with salt and pepper. 3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and lower heat to a simmer. Cook until just about tender, about 15-25 minutes, depending upon your choice of rice. 4. Meanwhile, in a large non-stick skillet over high heat, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the mushrooms; cook until golden (about 5 minutes). Add the broccoli, cooking until al dente, about 3 minutes.

Transfer the mushrooms and broccoli to the saucepan with the rice. Season with salt and pepper. Add ¼ cup chives. Cover pan; remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. 5. Spoon into warm serving plates and sprinkle with remaining chives and parmesan cheese (if desired).
