Sauteed Mushrooms and Rice

Sauteed mushrooms and rice is a savory and scrumptious side dish that work perfect with chicken, fish, or beef.

The Backstory: This recipe for sauteed mushrooms and rice comes to me by way of my friend, Dini.  She was kind enough to share all her recipes with me.  Most of them were recipes that were shared by her and her friends.  When I asked her about any recipes she had, was I surprise.  She brought me a shopping bag loaded to the brim with a whopping amount of her favorites.  This particular one was given to her by her friend Helen. I am posting this almost exactly as it is written. The  difference is in the  amount of seasonings, and the use of onion soup, which I deleted.  Dini gave me her consent to use whatever I needed. I know I will be busy with her collection for a long time. Thanks, Dini. More of the Backstory after the recipe
