How to make it

  • Bring 1 cup of water and the wild rice to a boil in a small saucepan. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer about 15 minutes, just enough to parboil the rice; drain.
  • (Begin here if only using white rice.) In deep saucepan, heat butter. In it, brown pasta, stirring frequently. Add chicken broth, 1/2 c. water, salt and pepper. Stir in both white and parboiled wild rice (or just the white rice; if using that); bring to a boil.
  • Simmer, covered, over low heat for 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. DO NOT stir rice or remove cover while cooking.
  • About 5 min. before rice is finished, heat a small amount of water in a saucepan with a steamer basket inside. When water begins to boil, place cranberries and green onions in steamer basket. Cover and blanch for 30 - 45 seconds. Remove from heat and drain.
  • Stir cranberries, green onions, and toasted almonds into pilaf. Serve immediately.

    Oh that sounds so good - I love wild rice, and the cranberries are a great pairing with it. I have some left over wild rice in the fridge, so I will make this this week and post pictures, if you this post!
