1 (6 ounce) package
uncooked wild rice
frozen green peas, thawed
In my opinion this was kind of bland as is but after some doctoring up, this turned out to be a delicious side dish. I used half wild rice and half white and added some sauteed carrots, onions and celery that I cooked until tender in equal amounts of butter and olive oil. I also added a package of "fruitlings" which are chopped up bits of dried fruit and a handful of slivered almonds and tossed the mixture well. This was much more flavorful and even though I didn't follow the recipe, I ended up creating a family favorite. Thanks for the staring poing Brandi.
After reading all the rave reviews I can't believe how blah this dish is. I think my mistake was using a suggested 1/3 white rice and 3/4 wild rice. The white rice turned to mush. I cooked the rice in beef broth. When done, I added onion, garlic, and celery cooked tender in a little olive oil along with the peas, cranberries, and toasted walnuts. Nothing saved it. It's still mush. I think with fluffy wild rice it would have been very good, just don't use white rice.
I cooked rice in chicken broth and added walnuts... great side dish!
This is a very good start for a delicious side dish. I cooked rice mixture in chicken broth, added toasted slivered almonds, minced green onion and garlic. Yummy!
Good recipe after alterations. Be sure to season your rice and it is a family winner.
This one's very good, gives a unique flavoring to an otherwise boring side dish
FANTASTIC! THIS GETS RAVE REVIEWS WITH MY FAMILY AS WELL AS ME. YUMMY!
Was good...a little different, but after everyone tried it, they really liked it
