Rice Almondine Marsala

This is a side dish that is fast and easy and delicious with any meat you serve. The buttery toasted almond taste compliments the rice and the sweetness from the Marsala blends is a perfect match to this delicious rice almondine. Amazingly enough they will think you took all day to prepare this and it will surprise you on how fast and easy it is.



2 cups of white rice cooked( fast or regular rice long grain)
6 tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoons of fresh minced garlic
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup Marsala wine
In a fry pan melt butter and olive oil and saute almonds till lightly brown, add garlic and mushrooms cook until mushrooms are soft. Add Marsala last and saute one more minute. Stir in cooked rice and serve.

Simple, but a perfect touch to make a meal really special. I will try this with seafood or chicken. We eat a lot of rice but never thought of this combo..thanks for the great idea!

I really like this idea. I wonder if I could use leftover day-old rice and "fry" it like I would fried rice. Definitely a tasty side for something simple!

Marsala is one of my favorites, so versatile. Great idea with the rice and of course, a perfect match for mushrooms!
