Veggie Mushroom Rice

There’s plenty of herb and mushroom flavor for friends and family to savor in this hearty, healthful side dish. It would go well with a variety of meats and main dishes. Tammy Condit – League City, Texas

    Made this tonight and was very disappointed. No one felt that it had any flavor other than the rubbed sage. Maybe replacing the water with vegetable broth might help but the recipe as-is is very, very bland.

    I served this with bbq ribs and it was a nice change from typical baked beans. Next day it was served as a salad - cold with some asparagus and lemon juice added.
