How to make it

  • Wash the rice thoroughly; then strain in a strainer.
  • Add the rice to rapidly boiling water in a heavy saucepan.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 35 to 50 minutes or until the kernels just pop open.
  • Uncover, fluff the rice and simmer 5 more minutes.
  • Strain any excess liquid.
  • Place the rice in a bowl in the refrigerator to cool.
  • Finely chop the chives.
  • When the rice has cooled, add enough extra virgin olive oil to coat the rice. You want to be generous, but the result should not be greasy.
  • Mix in the pinenuts, pumpkin seeds and dried tart cherries
  • Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

    Wild about wild rice with pine nuts, the cranberries add another little bit of sunshine to the dish both with color and nutritionally.

    This sounds so earthy and delicious. I love wild rice, and tossing in the pine nuts and pumpkin seeds would just make this incredible.
