Recipe by Kumquat the Cat's friend
Love the nut and cranberry combination in this dish as well as the two kinds of rices. Found it on a bottle of lemon juice from the grocery store, but that doesn't mean you can't use fresh lemon juice instead. Nice side for Thanksgiving. Cooking time includes a little prep time. If you only have fresh pecans, they can be toasted in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes (while rice is cooking). Wild rice and rice pilafs are classic Canadian fare, so I have posted this for Zaar World Tour 2005 (Canadian).
