Wild Rice Almondine

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by - Carla -

This is a delicious wild rice recipe we tend to serve around the holiday season. It's a nice dish because after preparation you just set it in the oven for an hour or so, which leaves you more time to visit with your guests and/or do other things.

This is a delicious, simple recipe. I made it for a few different people, and everyone raved about it! The water chestnuts and the almonds are delicious in this dish. It is a great for a pot-luck carry-in! There is a lot of oil in this; next time I will experiment using less oil.
