I recently shared a cranberry, apple, pecan wild rice which is one of my favorite meals I’ve made via Pinterest. Today’s wild rice pilaf is another one I found on Pinterest and is delicious as well. Although it does come second to the cranberry one! Nonetheless I wanted to share it on here.
This wild rice & mushroom pilaf recipe that I found on Pinterest is great. I followed the recipe with two exceptions. Instead of vegetable broth, I used chicken broth. The other change I made was adding a 4th mushroom. The recipe calls for button, cremini, and shitaki, but I added in a 4th mushroom – king oyster.
For this recipe you’ll need:
- white onion
- wild rice
- vegetable broth (I used chicken)
- olive oil
- mushrooms (button, cremini, shitake – and I added king oyster as well)
- white wine
- fresh chives for garnish optional
First, melt some butter in a pot and soften the onions. Then, add in the wild rice, stir, and add in the broth. Bring the broth to a boil, lower the fire, and cover for 45 minutes or until the broth is absorbed.
In a pan, heat some oil and cook the mushrooms until they brown adding in salt and pepper. Add in the wine and cook until the wine evaporates. When the rice is done, fold the mushrooms in to the rice and fluff up.
Add some vegetables and/or meat and you’ve got a nice hearty meal for the cold weather approaching!
