"The nutty flavor of wild rice makes a great combo with dried apricots, pine nuts, and traditional ingredients. I combined some recipes and the result was eagerly consumed. When I made this I fully cooked the rice. This is a forgiving and flexible recipe. There are so many different things to add or substitute: walnuts, almonds, orange zest, dried cranberries, mushrooms, more bread, whatever you prefer."

Tried this and everyone liked it will try it again and again

I really really wanted to like this rice more, and I think I'll try it again with a few changes. I made Cranberry Walnut Bread from this site so I could make this rice, and I let the slices dry...

This was good, but the next time I make this I will definitely cut this in half.
