This rice combination with the wild rice gives you a nice crunchy taste. The saffron strands add a very delightful flavor and the crushed cashews just top it off. I started this combination or rice about 12 years ago to the delight of many.
If you love onions like we do, especially when the Walla Walla sweets come into season (and it's not that far away), you should prepare yourself for this wonderful vegetarian dish which we make for dinner with a side salad. Even though we aren't vegetarians, we LOVE these wonderful onions. They can also be served as an impressive side dish to a meat/fish entree....healthy and delectable.

Oh, I just love rice pilaf! This one is from a Swanson Broth Creative Cooking recipe pamphlet. Just remember that the broth is already diluted, so don't add water! Also, feel free to add other herbs of your choice.
I modified the original recipe. This is a very pretty and tangy tasting salad. The wild rice and pine nuts add a nice crunch to an otherwise slightly boring salad. Be generous with the feta and serve with tomato slices. This would make a nice potluck dish.
I came up with this recipe while I was trying to get rid of some leftovers and refrigerator odds and ends. The crisp beans, creamy squash, and savory seasonings complement each really nicely. If you have rice and squash already cooked, it's a snap to put together. Serves 2 as a main dish, 4 as a side.
