I have been using this recipe for years now. I cannot recall where the recipe comes from, maybe a Joy of Cooking cookbook? I've searched the internet and can't seem to find this recipe anymore. I am posting it here for safe keeping. I usually make this for a holiday side dish and can easily be made vegan by using vegan butter. Cooking time includes time to cook the rice. The rice can be made ahead of time. Once you have cooked wild rice, the dish comes together very quickly.
