    We enjoyed this dish! I used Uncle Ben's Wild Rice mix and reduced the amounts of ingredients accordingly for 3 servings. I sauteed the onion, garlic and mushrooms in a little butter, added the broth and asparagus, then combined with the rice. I love the sweet cranberries, the crunchy pine nuts, a great tasting dish! Prepared for PAC SPRING 2010.

    This recipe was fabulous! I made it with amfox's roast chicken and I am in love with both of them. I made a second batch of the rice after dinner last night (my family ate it all up!) for lunch today and it was great cold just as it was hot. This is definitely a new, healthy favorite!
