black pepper to taste
dash Tabasco sauce
If using dried mushrooms, rehydrate them in warm water for 30 minutes or until soft (see below on how to rehydrate mushrooms). Drain well. Sauté mushrooms, garlic, scallions, and nuts in olive oil.
Prepare rice according to package directions. Toss mushroom mixture and rice together. Season with black pepper and Tabasco sauce.
HOW TO REHYDRATE MUSHROOMS
All dried mushrooms are rehydrated in the same way. Place the mushrooms to be rehydrated in a medium-size bowl. Add enough warm water to cover the mushrooms. Use warm, not hot, water. Let stand for up to 30 minutes. Small pieces will rehydrate faster than larger ones, so keep an eye on the process. You can test for proper moisture by squeezing. Each piece should be soft and pliable. Squeeze out excess water before cooking.
Try using chicken or vegetable broth instead of water for extra flavor when rehydrating. If you use water, save it and use as a substitute in any recipe that calls for chicken broth or vegetable broth.
