Full Recipe:


  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz (about 225g) mushrooms (cremini or button), sliced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, dried
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Rinse the Rice:
    • Rinse the brown rice under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove excess starch.
  2. Cook the Rice:
    • In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a boil.
    • Add the rinsed rice to the boiling broth, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 40-45 minutes or until the rice is tender and water is absorbed.
  3. Sauté Onions and Garlic:
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and sauté until translucent.
    • Add minced garlic and continue to sauté for an additional minute until fragrant.
  4. Add Mushrooms:
    • Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and become golden brown.
  5. Season with Herbs and Spices:
    • Sprinkle dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper over the mushrooms. Stir to combine and let the flavors meld for a few minutes.
  6. Combine with Rice:
    • Once the rice is cooked, add it to the skillet with the sautéed mushrooms. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  7. Add Soy Sauce:
    • Drizzle soy sauce or tamari over the rice and mushroom mixture. Stir to evenly distribute the flavors.
  8. Adjust Seasoning:
    • Taste the dish and adjust the salt and pepper according to your preference.
  9. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired, for a burst of freshness.
    • Serve the Vegan Rice with Mushrooms as a standalone dish or as a flavorful side.
