    1       c            Long-grain rice
    1       tb           Betty’s butter
    1                    Shallot -- minced
    2                    Green onions -- chopped

      1/2   c            Snow peas -- sliced
      1/2   c            Mushrooms -- sliced
    2       tb           White wine

   Soak rice 2 hours to shorten cooking time.  Rinse and
   drain.  In a medium-size non-stick saucepan, heat
   butter and saute shallot until softened.  Add
   vegetables and saute about 3 minutes.  Add rice to
   vegetables; stirring to coat.  Cook about 2 minutes.
   Stir in wine broth; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat,
   cover and simmer about 25 minutes, until rice is
   tender and liquid is absorbed.  Remove from heat and
   fluff with a fork.  Season with salt and pepper.
   Garnish with seasame seeds. NOTE:  Try this recipe
   with other vegetables such as peas, bell peppers,
   zucchini, raddichio, radishes, green beans, asparagus,
   etc.
