I didn't have any cooking wine so I just used water and the family doesn't like mushrooms so I left them out. Otherwise it was great - I can see all kinds of other add-ins to change it to suit my fancy of the day...like maybe 1/2 cup frozen peas or 1/4 cup crumbled bacon. Read More

This was a good combo pilaf. I prepared it as published. I thought it could use some more flavor and my wife thought it was fine. I have frozen the left overs for future use. Read More

My husband wanted a healthier side dish to serve with prime rib. I've made this twice in two weeks since this is a perfect lunch to take to work with veggies. I omitted the carrots since I served them in a spring veggie dish and used fresh thyme. The local grocery store was sold out of crimini mushrooms so I subbed in baby portabella mushrooms. I cook this in the microwave though which is my new favorite way to cook rice. Thank you for this awesome potato replacement recipe! Read More

Made this as written except I used regular mushrooms and a dry white wine that I had on hand...otherwise followed all ingredients and measurements. Timing was perfect. All rices were done. If you like the flavor of wild rice this is really a good recipe. Read More

i chose this recipe bc i had some leftover white wine that i wanted to use up.. i cut this in half and used all white rice (1 cup).. i subbed chopped onion for the mushrooms.. used 1.5 cups water and the half cup of wine.. i was worried about it lacking salt/flavor as some commented and added 2 tsp chicken bouillon instead of 1.5 tsp.. next time i would reduce it a bit as it was a little on the salty side.. it makes me think of rice my mom or gram would make.. thank you for keeping me from throwing out that last bit of wine and making good use of it!

Might have been five stars if I'd had followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have the right mushrooms or any carrots:( I also added some fresh chopped parsley. Still one of the tastiest wild rice recipes ever or my changes wouldn't have worked. Compliments to the original chef. Read More

Delicious! I made it according to the recipe except I could not find crimini mushrooms so I substituted baby bella mushrooms. I think that one could leave out the butter at the end to reduce the fat. Read More
