Nutty Wild Rice with Cranberries

Posted in Rice at 3:37 pm by Sheila OConnell

If you’re looking for an alternative to mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, try this nutty wild rice with cranberries, apples and walnuts.  Note: this recipe makes enough for a crowd (think Thanksgiving) so you might want to halve it.  I used a brown rice/wild rice combination mix that I found at the store instead of buying each rice separately.

Ingredients:

1 cup wholegrain rice, uncooked
1 cup wild rice, uncooked
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup apple, diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Rinse and drain wild rice with cold water.  Place wholegrain and wild rice in a large saucepan with the broth and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender and broth is absorbed, about 45 minutes.  Transfer rice to a large bowl and fold in cranberries, diced apple and walnuts.  Serves 6 – 8.
