One-Pan Creamy Mushroom Rice with Green Onions

This One-Pan Creamy Mushroom Rice with Green Onions is a real stunner. Made with just 5 simple ingredients, 1 ordinary frying pan and done in 30 minutes. The perfect dish for a busy weeknight dinner or for a relaxed weekend lunch, next to a bottle of Spanish wine.

The best part about this dish, besides how easy it is to make, is the flavors. We´re talking an explosion of goodness. Between the mushrooms and the green onions, it´s absolutely delicious. .

To make this recipe I used Spanish round rice. But you can use any type of medium to short grained rice, like Arborio rice. Basically, any rice you would to make a risotto. I also used homemade vegetable broth, but you can always use the store-bought stuff.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The secret to this recipe, is to mix the rice around with the broth every 1 to 2 minutes. This helps release the starch from the rice, which is what gives the broth that creamy texture.

    Very tasty, but mine didn’t turn out with a very creamy texture. Also I would have added a little less oil. I also added in some saffron, highly recommend that.
