Savory Rice

1 cup, uncooked long grain rice
4 TBS butter or margarine
1/2 large white onion, sliced
1 (4 oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained
*house seasoning* optional
3 TBS soy sauce
1 - Prepare rice as directed by package instructions. (We use a rice cooker: 1 cup rice + 2 1/8 cups water.)
2 - In a deep skillet, melt butter or margarine and add sliced onions and sliced mushrooms.
3 - As onions begin to become transparent, add house seasoning if desired.
4 - Combine cooked rice to sauteed vegetables, then mix in soy sauce.
5 - Ready to serve - enjoy!!
Hint: Our version of house seasoning. is a shaker filled with equal parts ground black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and red pepper - used sparingly. Yes, a little goes a long way. We eat a lot of rice in our house and tonight I just needed to mix it up a bit, this recipe turned out beautifully! One of our children will not touch mushrooms, so I made sure to carefully portion him a serving without mushrooms. Poor guy doesn't know what he's missing!!
