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.
