Directions

  1. Place almonds on an ungreased baking sheet. Toast at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Mix broth, brown rice, and wild rice in a medium saucepan, and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 45 minutes, until rice is tender and broth is absorbed.
  3. In medium skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and brown sugar. Saute until butter is absorbed and onions are translucent and soft. Reduce heat, and cook onions for another 20 minutes, until they are caramelized.
  4. Stir cranberries and mushrooms into the skillet. Cover, and cook 10 minutes or until berries start to swell. Stir in almonds and orange zest, then fold the mixture into the cooked rice. Salt and pepper to taste.

I've been making this for at least a year now & it's our very favorite rice dish. This week my son said, "Mom, this rice is bangin'" (His highest praise.) I use 1 cup uncooked white Basmati rice (which is nutty) to 1/2 cup wild rice. My wild rice calls for 65 minutes of cooking, and it's perfect. This week I substitued walnuts for almonds (almonds are better), and I've used dried, chopped dates instead of dried cranberries, but Kathy's combo of tastes & textures is the best (except that I've never had fresh mushrooms on the days I've made this recipe & I often forget the orange zest!) This is one of those forgiving recipes that is nearly impossible to ruin. This is my very first review...sorry it took so long to say "Thank You".

Well it would have been great except for the fact that it was too buttery and therefore slimy.

This is another reicpe that I use frequently. I don't like the onion wedges in this though. I make the recipe just as written except that I sliver the onion wedges so that the onion is in short thin strips. This reduces the cooking time for the onions (20 minutes) considerably since more surface area of the onions are exposed. I also toast the almonds before using them. PLace the almond slivers on a baking sheet and pop into a preheated 350*F oven. Eacth them closely, they will burn if not tended to. Stir the almonds frequently til light brown. The toasted almonds make the dish taste deeper and nuttier.

I loved it!!!!!!!!!!! My mom soaked the cranberries in white wine and didn't use mushrooms.

Excellent!! Made it for a crowd of 15 and everyone enjoyed it. Was great with the crown roast of pork. A really pretty holiday side dish.

I didn't quite know what to expect with this recipe. I was pleasantly surprised....it was the perfect companion to my pork roast. I found two medium sized onions to be plenty.....I'm not sure I would have wanted another onion in it. I also didn't have any orange zest so I left it out. This was a nice change from regular rice.
