Brown Rice with Truffle and Chive

White truffle oil is a wonderful but assertive flavor, and a little goes a long way. If you’re unsure of how much truffle flavor you prefer, start with 1 teaspoon and add more to your own taste.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups short-grain brown rice
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white truffle oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter. Add the shallot and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the stock, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the broth is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 45 minutes.

  2. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Review Body: Today, I made an adjustment of this dish (essentially just with olive oil and diverse herbs), and the outcome was still excellent and very tasty. I adore truffle so much! When I go out I always choose something with truffle, so this goes in line with my cook list soon. Thanks for the recipe!
