  1. Cook your rice in a rice steamer. You'll want to add a little more water than usual so that the rice flowers.
  2. Chop the herbs.
  3. Brown the garlic and sauté the onions in olive oil until the onions are transparent.
  4. When the rice has finished cooking, stir in the garlic, onions and herbs. Set to the side.
  5. Fire up the broiler or the BBQ. Prepare your mushrooms, drizzle each with a bit of olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Broil or grill the mushroom caps until the meat of the shroom is tender, like a nice steak (about 15 minutes, just keep your eye on them)
  7. When mushrooms are done, fill the center of the mushroom where the stem had been removed with a mound of the rice mixture.
  8. Enjoy!

I served these with a fruit salad and mixed vegetables.

He loved the meal, and furthermore, I didn't kill him! We sat on my lawn and had a nice candlelit dinner on a warm summer night, the smell of earthy mushrooms and fresh herbs mingling with the cut grass and evening dew. The night was a success and marked a real beginning for the first relationship that I'd had in a very long time, and with someone who seemed to be my complete opposite. From our bellies to our hearts, we're very different, but I'm hoping that we'll find a middle ground somewhere in more than just the kitchen.
