Brazilian Wild Rice Blend

READY IN: 1hr 20mins

I got this off a package of Lundberg gourmet whole grain rice mix. I have changed the recipe slightly. I think this would also be good with a little cumin added.

Sharon, this is one of my go-to recipes, and I'm sorry I haven't reviewed it sooner. It is a very dressed up side dish, and I bring it to potlucks, or to highlight any type of Central or South America dinner I'm hosting, and it always raises eyebrows. The flavors are a little tame for my tastes, but easily kicked up with more sweet and salty accents. Thanks for posting.
