Jasmine Rice with Shiitakes and Scallions

Source: Martha Stewart Living, January 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup jasmine rice, rinsed well
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon rice-wine vinegar
  • 1 scallion, cut into 2-inch-long pieces, thinly sliced lengthwise

Directions

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a small pot. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in 1 tablespoon oil, and season with salt and pepper. Cover, and let stand.

  2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 4 tablespoons oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add shiitakes in a single layer, and cook, stirring often, until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 2 minutes more. Add garlic, and cook until light gold, about 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Transfer rice to a platter, top with shiitake mixture, and sprinkle with scallions. Serve immediately.
