This Vegan Chinese Mushroom Rice recipe is really easy to execute and best of all, delicious. This dish was inspired by the famous Taiwanese Braised Pork Rice but we gathered that some of you cannot take pork or animal derived ingredients so we decided to replicate the taste using mushrooms instead. As this is a rice cooker recipe, you just need one pot. Even if you don't have a rice cooker, you can cook this in a normal pot over your stove. Watch our cream of mushroom rice video (https://youtu.be/cS8DzVoSl6U) to learn how to cook rice over stove. You can also use your multicooker to cook as long as your cooker has the rice cooking function. If your rice cooker doesn't have the fry function, try turning on your rice cooker and set the rice cooking function with the lid open. Then see if the pot gets hot. If it does then you can just use it to fry the ingredients first before resetting the rice cooking function again to cook the rice normally as you would with normal rice. For those of you who are cooking for more, just ensure that your rice to water ratio is 1:1. This means that if you need to cook 3 cups of rice, just use 3 cups of water. Of course you'll need to increase the other ingredients proportionately. Easy, right?
See the ingredient list below for your easy reference. Hope you can recreate this yummy dish in the comfort of your home. Happy cooking!
