I didn't have wild rice on hand and replaced it with black rice aka forbidden rice. The black rice doesn't take as long to cook as brown rice does therefore I cooked it separately and stirred it into the brown rice just before serving. Fresh parsley and chives from the garden gave the rice additional flavor and color. This side dish complemented Recipe #81921 and oven grilled crookneck squash quite well.
