    This was my first time trying wild rice and this recipe was amazing!

    Absolutely wonderful. My daughter loves it. She doesn't like to eat cooked vegetables but from this meal she ask for second portion. I prefer to use red pepper, one onion and one carrot for more colour. Thank you for the recipe.

    an excellent wild rice recipe! I suggest buying "real" wild rice, not the commercial black grains. I cut back on the bacon to 3 slices, as well as the celery: this is why I only gave it 4 stars.

    This was very good and certainly added to the wild rice. The prep time was longer as was the cooking time. I would not use green pepper again, perhaps red pepper and only one onion. The bacon is a nice touch. Very flavorful.

<p>I am one of the early members of Zaar joining in October 2001. It was instantly my favorite site even though there were only about 5000 recipes. Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. <br /> <br />Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything.</p> 8724616"
