Herbed rice, with the enticing aroma of butter, parsley and spring onions, is teamed up with a creamy, saucy mushroom topping, to make a memorable treat that you will relish to the core.

The generous use of milk, thickened with corn flour, gives the mushroom topping its creaminess while a dash of celery and oregano enhance its flavour, giving it a rich aroma that complements the rice well, further accentuating its herby notes.

Serve the Herbed Rice with Mushrooms immediately on preparation, with a garnish of grated cheese that adds to its pleasing gooeyness.
