Seasoned Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix
Since we've been eating a lot of fish lately we've also been eating a lot of potatoes. Because what side goes best with fish? I started getting sick of potatoes though and tried to think of a rice dish that would taste good with fish. I knew wild rice was often paired with it, so a new mix was born.
Seasoned Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix (single use)
2/3 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1/3 cup uncooked wild rice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
What else you'll need
2 cups water
2 tablespoons butter or oil
Combine mix, water and butter/oil in a saucepan or rice cooker and simmer until rice is fully cooked. I used a rice cooker because I didn't want to burn it. If you cook it in a saucepan you have to check it and stir it and I don't have that kind of attention span when I'm trying to cook other things.
I served it with the fried fish mix from the previous post.
It paired very nicely with the fish and was a nice change from potatoes!
