mushroom & rice

I was looking for something quick, easy & ricey when I found this recipe for mushroom & rice onepot on the BBC Good Food site.


  • 200g basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion , chopped
  • 2 tsp chopped rosemary or 1 tsp dried
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms , quartered
  • 2 red peppers , sliced
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 425ml vegetable stock
  • handful parsley , chopped


  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.
  2. Tip the rice into a sieve, rinse under cold running water, then leave to drain.
  3. Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole, add the onion, then fry until softened, about 5 mins.
  4. Stir in the rosemary and mushrooms, then fry briefly.
  5. Add the rice, stir to coat in the oil, then add the peppers, tomatoes, stock and some freshly ground pepper. Bring to the boil, give it a stir, cover tightly with a lid, then bake for 20-25 mins until the rice is tender.
  6. Scatter over the parsley and serve.


This was very nice & easy to make. DD1 liked it (ish, I don’t think she was very hungry), and DH & I had seconds (there was stil some left, so would probably serve 4 adults).

I’d chopped the mushrooms up really small as I wasn’t sure DD1 would like them if she saw then, but I think they would have been ok.

Note to self: this made slightly too much to fit into the Pyrex dish which fits in the small oven, so next time either make less or use big oven.
