In a medium pan, melt the butter. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 2 minutes. Add the cremini, white mushrooms and shiitakes and cook until most of the liquid has reduced, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat. Deglaze with the wine. Add the chicken stock, turmeric and salt and pepper and stir. Bring to a simmer and simmer with the lid on until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

When it's done, sprinkle over some chopped parsley and serve.

Absolutely  delicious and easy to make.  I halved the recipe since I was cooking for only me and my boyfriend.  He loved the pilaf too!  Thanks, Ree.  This will be a go-to recipe for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this recipe exactly as directed on Christmas Eve as a replacement for a mushroom/pilaf rice that I usually make that is baked in the oven. This is so much easier, takes a fraction of the time, and every person in my family said they loved it and it was the best rice dish I had ever made. It is special enough to serve as a holiday side dish, and easy enough to make any night of the week. This will be going into my Christmas Eve tradition menu! The turmeric is a great little extra note. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was incredibly delicious and there honestly isn't one thing I would change about it. Delicious! Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! I had this with a filet mignon that I cooked in the pan (first time to do that). The bacon fell off of the filet and it fried perfectly in the Olive Oil/Butter/Garlic/Fresh Thyme base, while the pilaf was simmering, I added some of the base into the rice.....I served the pilaf with the bacon crumbled on top and then the filet as well....perfect compliment. Thank you for the recipe (great replacement for box mixes) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty! Only used about 1 pound of mushrooms and it came out very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was sooooo good!! I added more liquid (1:2 ) ratio & also washed & soaked basmati rice for 20 mts. I am pretty familiar with cooking rice being of Indian origin. This was very delicious & the rice came perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My only suggestion that is key is to wash/rinse the rice 3 times to get teh starch out of the rice before adding it to the pilaf mixture. This will prevent it from having a pastey taste or being too gluteness. The rice will come out and fluffy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE this recipe! Tried using brown rice and a little extra white wine :) Love any recipe I try from Ree! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe, it was really good. I made it with wild mushrooms and long grain brown rice; it was fantastic. Next time I'm going to try adding slivered almonds. I love your show, thanks for a great recipeI item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious! I saw her make it on her show this week (it was probably a re-run), and when I was making dinner last night it was stuck in head. I had to do some improvising, but it still great! I halved the recipe, only had 1 pound of baby bellas, used a basmati/wild rice blend from Trader Joe's, and only had vegetable broth on hand. I ended up having to add a lot more liquid and letting it cook about twice as long even though the rice only required 15 minutes. Also, I added half a bag of frozen peas to it at the very end. I'll certainly be making it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty recipe. I halved the recipe. Mushrooms made a lot of liquid so next time I will reduce the amount of liquid. I used 1-1/2 cups rice to 3 cups liquid (broth-including wine). I also added lots more garlic. Rice got mushy before the rice had absorbed all the liquid. Will definitely make again. and . 1-1/2 cups rice still makes a nice size quantity. Also added some chopped chives before serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Was looking for a different way to use Thanksgiving leftovers. Made this, but added an extra cup of stock and two cups of shredded turkey. Tasted great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cut the receipt way down as only 2 of us, but it was wonderful. As with most of Ree's recipes I don't change any of the ingredients just the portion size. item not reviewed by moderator and published
great taste! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The English major in me is coming out. "Serve over parsley"? I like parsley, but I think I'd rather 'sprinkle' with parsley. Thanks for the giggle. Oh and loved the recipe. Yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was delicious, I used a little less mushrooms though. I did not see her serve the mushroom pilaf when she served her dad and patsy their dinner. Just wondered if she forgot or it didn't turn out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
yes, you are!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Umm, WTH?? They didn't like it and that makes them a horrible person? Overreact much, Judy? item not reviewed by moderator and published
