I will make this again, but I we thought the rice needed an acidic counterpoint. Was bland. Read More

Not sure if I was supposed to but I used the flavor packet in the only wild rice I could find and I loved it. The cardamom was the part I did not like. I don't think it was necessary. Good recipe and one that would go GREAT with wild game such as duck or venison. Read More
