Recipe Tags:   Hot Vegetarian Vegan Vegetables Grains Herbs Side Dish Accompaniment en papillote parchment parcels foil parcels Gluten Wheat Dairy Free  Eggless


1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 small Onion, finely chopped
1 Garlic Clove, crushed
225g/8oz Long Grain Rice
100g/4oz Quick Cook Wild Rice
8 sprigs fresh Thyme
480ml/16fl.oz. Fresh Vegetable Stock or Water
Salt and pepper
100g/4oz Wild Mushrooms e.g. Ceps, Porcini Mushrooms, Shitake Mushrooms, thinly sliced or quartered



1.  Preheat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas Mark 6. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onions and garlic and sauté gently for 2-3 minutes.


2. Add the long grain and wild rice, toss to coat then add the thyme, pepper and stock, mix well, bring to simmering point then reduce the heat, cover tightly and cook for 10 minutes.


3. Meanwhile, cut 4 pieces of parchment paper, about 30cm square, fold in half and cut out a halt heart shape (see pictures below). Open the papers up and grease one side, leaving a border about 5cm/2-inches all the way around the edges.

4. Once the rice liquid has been absorbed by the rice,  divide the rice between the parcels, placing it close to the fold, top it with the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the parsley. Fold over the paper, lining up the edges then starting at the wider part, begin folding the paper over itself. As you progress around the paper, you'll end with a pointy bit which can just be twisted and folded over/under. Make sure you leave enough space so the parcels can puff up during cooking. See pictures below showing on how to assemble papillote parcels.


5. Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until the parcels are puffed up and browning.
