Xavi’s rice

Hi,

Some days ago my boss was telling me how lucky I am for knowing how to cook. Well, it’s true some recipes are not really easy, but there are some recipes really effortless and also with a nice flavor. After thinking about it, I’ve tested this recipe and named after him: Xavi’s rice

Ingredients (for 1 person):

  • 100 gr dried mushrooms
  • 50 gr rice
  • Soy sauce
  • Cheese (Old Amsterdam, Parmesan, Grana Padano …)

Add the dried mushrooms in a bowl, add hot water and let rest for 2 hours (or at least 1 hour), water must be hot but not too much, you must be able to maintain your finger inside water. After some time you kitchen will have a nice smell 🙂

Drain the mushrooms but don’t throw away the water, put it in a saucepan and when water is boiling add salt and rice  (about 50 gr per person) . Cook for 15 minutes.

When rice is about to be ready add olive oil in a wok, and when oil is hot add the mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook them while stiring for 3-4 minutes. Add soy sauce and then rice previously strained, stir and cook for 3 minutes.

Serve and add grated cheese over, I used Old Amsterdam, but parmesan or grana padano should be also nice.
