This rice was delicious! I used a mixture of white and wild as that is all that I had on hand - I cooked it for 20 minutes. I also added a bit of chopped red pepper for some colour. It was very easy to prepare and a huge hit at our thanksgiving dinner. I highly recommend this recipe! I also noted that it only took 30 minutes to reheat the entire product (after mixing in veggies and cheese).
Served this with cornish game hens, it was a big success. Could even be made the day before.
I made this for dinner last night, and my husband said (for the first time in 24 years of marriage) "we could serve this dish to guests!" LOL-I hope that isn't a comment on my usual cooking! I substituted carrots for the bell peppers, as no one in my house will eat peppers, and used about twice the veggies that the recipe called for. Next time I will try it in my slow cooker. Thanks for a great recipe!
My husband said that he had never tasted anything like that before...we both loved it. I used toasted pecans in place of the almonds and cooked the rice in my rice cooker (1 c. of rice to 4 c. of water). It was even better the 2nd day. Thanks for posting! I will be making this again.
Really tasty! I used less butter and omitted mushrooms because I don't eat them. I had a Chinese wild rice and barley mixture to use in this recipe. The nut and cheese mixture was great! Not a weeknight dish because the rice needs to be pre-cooked, so I did that the day before and made the rest of the recipe the next day. I served it with a salad (no meat, we are vegetarians). Next time I will add a few carrots for some vitamin A. BF really liked this too. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today!
Delish! I did sub carrot for pepper, and I probably used more veggies than the recipe called for. Other than that followed the recipe and it was great. I'll definitely make this again. I haven't had wild rice before, and I'm glad I started with this. Served it with lemon chicken. Husband didn't care for this, but he doesn't like wild rice at all, so his opinion didn't count! Thanks for sharing.
Great vegetarian wild rice recipe! I added a few chopped carrots for color and left the cheese on the side (for anyone to add, if desired). I actually made the wild rice part of it ahead of time (1 day in advance) and the remaining steps seemed to take no time at all. Brought it to a potluck tonight and it went over well! PS - the almonds are a MUST.
this was really great!! i just cooked some wild rice and used the directions on the box. then i followed the rest of the recipe and it turned out great! it added awesome SHABANG to plain wild rice! the flavor was great with all those veggies!
Given all the complimentary reviews, maybe I did something wrong. But this turned out quite bland for us. It's pretty, no doubt, but the flavor was eh. I used my rice cooker instead of cooking on the stovetop, and I used bella instead of white mushrooms - other than that, we followed the recipe. If I try again and it turns out better, I'll update my review!
Very good side dish. I'll definitely make it again.
