Pu-Erh Pilaf

Meg TeaChef Level 1

This is a mushroom rice pilaf but instead of vegetable or chicken broth, it uses pu-erh dante to enhance the earthy, mushroom flavor.

30 m 4


  • 2-3 Tbsp pu-erh dante
  • 16oz water
  • 3/4 cup long grain rice
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup vegetable/chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • Salt to taste


1. Put 2-3 Tbsp pu--erh dante in a pot with your water. Let brew to desired strength then strain.

2. In a 2qt saucepan melt your butter. Cook and stir your uncooked rice and garlic in the butter for about 3 minutes.

3. Carefully stir your tea into your rice/garlic mixture. Add your mushrooms, broth, and dried herbs.

4. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

5. Stir in green onions.

Makes about 4 servings (about 2/3 cups each)
