  1. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add the wild rice, cover the pan, and reduce the heat. Simmer for 25 minutes; drain well.
  2. Bring 4 cups water to simmer in a large saucepan. Keep the water simmering while you begin step number 3.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Saute the scallions and garlic over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the Arborio rice; stir it for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour the wine, the wild rice, and the tarragon into the frying pan. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour 1/2 cup of the heated water into the frying pan. Stir frequently until the liquid is absorbed, then add 1/2 cup more water. Continue adding the water in this manner, waiting between additions until the liquid is absorbed and stirring frequently. After about 18 to 20 minutes most of the liquid should be absorbed, and the rice should be tender but still slightly chewy.
  6. When all of the water is absorbed, add the tomatoes, coconut milk, and peas. Stir in the mixture, and simmer it, stirring often, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Serve at once.

This was a little time consuming, due to precooking the wild rice. I would add more chicken broth or stock and less water next time to give it more flavor - otherwise it was great. I added chi...

This was a lot of work, but that's risotto for you! My husband commented that it was bland, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Way too over-done. Wild rice risotto is a great concept. As I was cooking it, it actually tasted wonderful. But after I added the tomatoes, peas, and coconut milk, it just turned into a disap...

No flavor to this recipe. We don not use a lot of salt in our food but this needs either salt or butter. I would not recommend this dish.

I made my very first risotto tonight. I made it very simple, substituting beef broth, no white wine on hand. My family loved it :)
