To get the most out of the mushroom stems, chop them finely and add them to the rice mixture. Black rice requires a longer cooking time, like brown, so be sure to leave time in your cooking schedule to make sure your appetizers arrive on your counter before your guests ring your doorbell!Tip: Black rice can be hard to find, but many stores are carrying wild rice mixtures that pair black and brown for a lovely, nutritious effect.
