Nutty Mushroom Rice
I've cheated on occasion and used a box of Uncle Ben's® Long Grain & Wild Rice Mix (without the seasoning packet). Plain old white rice gets boring rather quickly.

(Serves 4)

4 servings converted rice, prepared
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup shredded carrots
½ cup chopped walnuts (almond slivers work well, too)
¼ teaspoon EACH marjoram, thyme and chopped rosemary
1 (4-oz.) can mushroom slices, drained
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Prepare 4 servings of converted rice according to package directions. Set aside.

In a skillet, over medium-high heat,  melt the butter. Add the onion, carrots, walnuts, mushrooms and herbs. Sauté until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the prepared rice and sprinkle with the parsley. Heat through and serve.
