Categories: Main dish, Rice
Yield: 4 Servings

2 tb Extra virgin olive oil
40 Pearl onions; peeled and

1 Clove garlic; peeled, minced
2 c Basmati rice
1 tb Paprika (powdered)
1/2 c Dry white wine
6 c Vegetable stock, hot
Salt and ground black pepper
-to taste
2 c Mushrooms, wild or domestic,
2 c Broccoli florets, blanched
1/2 c Chives (or scallions), diced
1/4 c Parmesan cheese, grated

1. In a large non-stick saucepan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium-high
heat. Add the onions; cook until tender and browned on both sides (about 7
minutes). 2. Add the garlic; cook until it begins to brown, about 2
minutes. Add the rice; heat until it is toasted and hot. Add the paprika
and mix well. Add the white wine and cook until all the liquid is gone,
about 3 minutes. Add the hot vegetable stock. Season well with salt and
pepper. 3. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and lower heat to a simmer. Cook
until just about tender, about 15-25 minutes, depending upon your choice of
rice. 4. Meanwhile, in a large non-stick skillet over high heat, add the
remaining tablespoon of oil. Add the mushrooms; cook until golden (about 5
minutes). Add the broccoli, cooking until al dente, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the mushrooms and broccoli to the saucepan with the rice. Season
with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 cup chives. Cover pan; remove from heat and
allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving. 5. Spoon into warm serving
plates and sprinkle with remaining chives and parmesan cheese (if desired).
