Opa George's Wild Rice
Ingredients1 h servings 163 cals
- Bring water, wild rice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a heavy saucepan; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the wild rice is tender, 30 to 45 minutes.
- Stir morel mushrooms, chestnuts, and 2 chopped green onions into the rice; simmer until mushrooms and green onions are tender, another 15 minutes.
- Drain any excess liquid. Mix sour cream and 1 chopped green onion into wild rice mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Serve immediately.
- Cook's Note:
- If you are using dried mushrooms, set them to soak at least two hours before cooking, preferably longer. Place mushrooms in a bowl with boiling water to cover, weighing them down with a smaller bowl or other object so that they don't float on top of the water. After soaking, when mushrooms are soft, you can pass the mushroom liquor through a paper towel to remove any grit and substitute it for an equal amount of the cooking water for the wild rice. This will intensify the mushroom flavor of the dish.
