OK, so I get tired of PLAIN old rice on my plate all the time, so when I'm BORED, I stir in some extras! This is another EASY recipe that tastes FANTASTIC!
Wild Rice with Nuts and Veggies
1 cup uncooked wild rice
2 to 2 1/2 cups chicken broth or stock
1 cup julienned spinach (thinly sliced strips)
1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup sliced almonds, coarsely chopped
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
Cook the rice in the broth according to package directions. When there's about 5 minutes left on the time, stir in the remaining ingredients. Let time finish and then serve. See what I mean about easy?
TIP: The possibilities of adding extras to the rice are endless! Some other good combinations: diced green olives with pinenuts and sun-dried tomatoes; julienned spinach with garlic and grated fresh Parmesan cheese; caramelized onions with some drained canned tomatoes; bacon with just about anything; etc., etc.!
