Wild Rice and Squash Pilaf

Wild Rice and Squash Pilaf

"AS A graduate student, I'm always looking for fast, nutritious dishes that cost next to nothing to fix and have a minimum of cleanup. The pilaf is fantastic with fish or poultry and especially compatible with turkey. Since it's so colorful, I like to think it makes my turkey 'dressed for the holidays'. -Erica Ollmann, San Diego, California"

This is ok. I had to add extra soy sauce and after everything was done it was still kind of bland so I sprinkled a little garlic salt over the top. I think I would add more garlic, more soy and...

Great, easy recipe. I did use a package of mixed wild rices, about 1/2 of a large acorn squash and I did not have soy sauce so I substituted 2 tsp worchestersire sauce. Will definitely make ag...

I made this for a crowd of 30, it was really tasty. I did find it a bit bland so added more savoury and soy sauce. I had forgotten how much I liked savoury, I will have to find other ways to ...

I really did not like this recipe. I used butternut squash and omitted the mushrooms (i didn't have any on hand) and the almonds (my husband doesn't like nuts in his food). I also added all in...
