Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Tablespoons yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 Tablespoons dried cranberries, chopped
  • 2 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cloves roasted garlic, smashed
  • 2 Tablespoons dry white wine
  • fresh parsley, for garnish
  • toasted almonds, for garnish

Instructions

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 1/2 Tablespoon butter. Add onion and saute for 5 minutes, until golden. Add wild rice, stir well to coat. Stir occasionally for 1 minute, to lightly toast rice
  • Add vegetable broth, bring to low boil, and reduce to simmer. Cover and cook for 20-35 minutes. 
  • COOKING TIME VARIES BASED ON THE RICE YOU USE! The more long grain rice the blend has, the faster it will cook. A hearty wild rice blend will take 45-50 minutes total
  • When the liquid has absorbed to the point that you can just see the grains of rice, add the cranberries and stir well. Cover, and cook for another 7-10 minutes
  • START THE MUSHROOMS WHEN YOU ADD THE CRANBERRIES TO THE RICE
  • In a skillet over medium heat, melt 1/2 Tablespoon butter. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper, and saute for 5 minutes, until soft. Add garlic, and stir for 1 minute. Add wine and cook for 1 minute
  • Transfer mushrooms to rice mixture, and fold together
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and toasted almonds
