Wild Rice with Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms
This hearty, robust dish is excellent warm or made ahead and served at room temperature.
2 cups wild rice
¼ pound Shiitake mushrooms, sliced
3 to 4 cups Farm & Larder chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons butter
1 sweet onion onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
¼ cup toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
F&L white truffle oil
1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and about a teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add 3 cups of chicken stock, stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer, cover and cookfor about 20 minutes, adding more chicken stock if needed, until rice is fully cooked.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, plus a dash of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the wine and cook, scraping up the brown bits, until evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Fluff the rice and fold in the mushrooms, parsley, and remaining tablespoon of butter. Top with chopped hazelnuts and a drizzle of our house white truffle oil.
