Wonderful side dish! I made my own brown and wild rice mix by mixing 1/4 c wild rice with 3/4 c brown rice. I used fresh shiitake mushrooms but omitted the scallions (personal preference), and it still had plenty of flavor. Thanks Paula for another keeper! Made for ZWT6.

Oh yeah, we were liking this one tonight for dinner with our Yakitori ( Japanese Grilled Chicken Skewers). I followed this recipe to a tee, using fresh shitake mushrooms. I would not change a thing! Perfect. I would definitely serve this to company. Thanks, Paula. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.

This is very good. Went very well with grilled salmon. I used dried shiitakes. I have some dried mixed wild mushrooms that would be very good in this dish also. I will be making this again!

Tasty and healthy. Like another reviewer I felt it could have had a tad more almonds but otherwise it was perfect.

I made this as a side dish to our broiled trout dinner....it was excellent. I used a rice mix that I found at our farmer's market and followed the instructions, using fresh shiitake mushrooms. The butter I used was "Earth Balance Buttery Spread" (cholesterol free) as we're watching our cholesterol. My diabetic Mom made a stink (if it's not fatty or sweet she doesn't like it) but she ate and enjoyed this rice. Thanks for posting this recipe Paula, it's a keeper in our house :)

I made this last night for ZWT2 to go with my salmon dish. It took a long time to cook, but it was very yummy! I used sliced almonds, and could barely taste or see them! 6 servings is very accurate. Thanks for sharing! :)
