December 19, 2016 Prep Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings

1 cup Shiitake mushrooms, quartered 1 Tbsp Grapeseed or Canola oil
2 cups Jasmine Rice, rinsed
4 cups Cold water
2 tsp This Little Goat Went to Grillville Spice Mix
1 cup Snowpeas, sliced ¼”
1 cup Red Pepper, diced small
¼ c Scallion, sliced thinly on a bias
Salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Toss mushrooms, oil and 1 tsp salt. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a 2 qt saucepan combine rice, water, 2 teaspoons salt, and Grillville Spice mix. Bring up to a boil, lower heat to just a simmer and cover tightly. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, until rice is tender and water is absorbed.
Remove from heat, add snow peas, red pepper, and shiitakes, and allow to rest, still covered, for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Fluff rice with fork, fold in scallions, and adjust seasoning with additional salt if desired. Serve immediately.
