Wild Rice and Orzo Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 2
A friend of mine served this side dish for a group dinner. We all loved and devoured it. It's so very easy and versatile that you can personalize it to suit your own taste.

Minnesota Wild Rice Dressing

Rating: 4.5 stars 64
This wild rice dressing recipe was given to me by a friend, and it has been a family tradition ever since. No need to stuff the turkey. This dressing can be made the day before Thanksgiving and heated in the microwave 10 minutes before serving!

Wild Rice Pilaf

Rating: 4 stars 12
This is a very tasty and easy recipe. I've even served this to people who swear they don't like rice and they love it. Have to make a double recipe to keep my husband from eating everyone's share! It makes an especially good side dish for chicken.

Rhubarb Wild Rice Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
A new way to use rhubarb, it plays off the nutty flavor of wild rice. This makes an attractive, unexpected side for fish or poultry. It has become a requested holiday dish in our family.

Minnesota Real Wild Rice Stuffing

Rating: 3.5 stars 6
The nutty flavor of wild rice makes a great combo with dried apricots, pine nuts, and traditional ingredients. I combined some recipes and the result was eagerly consumed. When I made this I fully cooked the rice. This is a forgiving and flexible recipe. There are so many different things to add or substitute: walnuts, almonds, orange zest, dried cranberries, mushrooms, more bread, whatever you prefer.

Opa George's Wild Rice

Rating: 3.5 stars 5
Combining wild rice, mushrooms, nuts, green onions, and sour cream, my father's recipe goes very well with any game dish. The recipe calls for fresh or dried morel mushrooms, which give the recipe its best flavor, but any type of mushroom, fresh or dried, should work well. Similarly, he always used chestnuts, but we have found that pecans and hazelnuts (and, probably walnuts or cashews) work just as well. Preparation time depends on whether one is using dried mushrooms or not.

A wonderful combination of rice, onions and mushrooms. Great served with chicken!

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Rating: 4.5 stars 912
A slight variation on a recipe I received from a fellow Minnesota farm wife. A delicious soup that can also easily be cooked in a slow cooker and freezes well.

This is a very good recipe that I got from my home state, Minnesota. Every summer when we come and visit, we are sure to buy wild rice for this casserole.
