  Categories: Salads
       Yield: 1 recipe
  
     1/3 c  Vegetable oil
       2 c  Uncooked brown rice
       3 c  Vegetable stock or water
            -- (2 to 3 cups)
     3/4 c  French dressing (of choice)
     2/3 c  Sliced water chestnuts
     1/2 c  Thinly sliced red pepper
            -- (sweet)
     1/4 c  Minced onion
     1/4 ts Garlic powder (optional)
     1/8 ts Italian seasoning (optional)
     3/4 lb Snow peas
            -- tips & strings removed
     1/2 lb Fresh mushrooms
            -- thinly sliced
  
   In a heavy casserole, heat the oil over moderate heat.
   Add the rice and saute for about 5 minutes or until
   the rice begins to darken; stir often. Stir in the
   vegetable stock, cover the pan and reduce the heat to
   low. Simmer until the liquid is absorbed about 1 hour.
   When the rice is cooked, toss it while still warm with
   1/4 cup french dressing.  Let rice mixture cool.  Add
   the water chestnuts, red pepper, onion, mushrooms and
   desired seasonings to the rice, then add another 1/4
   cup of dressing and toss.  Chill 1 hour.  Meanwhile,
   cover the snow peas with boiling water. Let them stand
   1 minute, then drain.  Rinse with cold water and pat
   dry. Cut the snow peas into 1 pieces and toss them
   with 1/4 cup dressing with rice mixture.
