I had just received some wild rice straight from Wisconsin and then found this recipe. I cut it down to one-third the amount, and that easily was enough for six servings. My problem with this was that the vegetables were total mush by the time it was done, so I'd caution people to add them just near the very end. I felt it was bland, so maybe one could up the seasonings and add some crunch from toasted almonds. I really do like the idea of the combination of the two rices. I'll give this another try with a different method of cooking. Thank you for this!

I have made this as stated, and it is a really good side dish. After a person tries this as written, you can find ways to personalize it too. Thanks for the submission!

Absolutely love this recipe! I bought wild rice on impulse and then realized I had no idea what to do with it. Luckily I found this recipe, which I made and served with grilled salmon. Perfect!
