A Moose Meadow Farm original
1/4 cup olive oil
1# onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of dried thyme and dried oregano or marjoram
2 cups chopped fresh or 1/2 cup chopped dried mushrooms (we use dried morels - thanks Laura!)
2 cups uncooked brown rice
1 quart canned or about 3# frozen whole tomatoes
About 1/2 gallon water or stock
4 cups roughly chopped greens, like radish or turnip greens, kale, chard or bok choi
1. In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and herbs. If using fresh mushrooms, add them here. Saute until the onions start releasing their liquid, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the rice and the dried mushrooms if using dried, and stir to coat in oil.
3. Add the tomatoes and broth or water, cover and bring to a gentle boil. Turn heat down to medium and simmer until the rice is cooked.
4. Stir in greens just before the rice is done. Serve hot with crusty bread or homemade croutons!
