This was the second rice dish from a blog on my google reader that did NOT dissapoint!  It tasted like a creamy marsala rice, so yummy.  My absolute favorite is her Garlic Rice which I probably have made 25 times this year, no joke!  It is on my blog too! 

2 tsp. olive oil
1 lb. brown mushrooms, cleaned and coarsely chopped
1 large onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cooked brown rice, at room temperature
2 large eggs
1 cup cottage cheese (reduced fat is fine)
½ cup sour cream (reduced fat is fine)
½ tsp. coarse salt
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
Minced fresh herbs, for garnish (optional), such as chives, parsley, etc.

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish.  In a large skillet over medium heat sauté the mushrooms in the olive oil, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms have released most of their liquid, about 5-7 minutes.  Add the onions to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent and tender, about 4-5 minutes.  Stir in the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Remove from the heat.  Add the rice to the skillet and stir to combine.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream, and salt until smooth.  Add in the rice mixture and stir gently until well blended.  Sprinkle most of the Parmesan over the top, reserving a bit for finishing.  Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake for 20-30 minutes more, until the top is lightly browned.  Top with remaining Parmesan and fresh herbs, if desired.
