Wild Rice and Orzo Pilaf
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
This 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
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
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
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
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.
Cashew Raisin Rice Pilaf
Very good low-fat rice pilaf. This dish is very good with poultry and pork dishes.
Wild Rice Stuffed Acorn Squash
A filling vegetarian main course dish, squash stuffed with stuffing and rice!
Rebecca's Wild Rice Pilaf
A wonderful combination of rice, onions and mushrooms. Great served with chicken!
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
A supremely filling, hearty soup. I serve this on cold rainy days with a loaf of homemade bread. Hint: this is perfect for leftover rotisserie chicken or chicken you've pulled from the bone after making homemade chicken stock! This soup makes great leftovers, but you might want to thin it slightly with skim milk or water when reheating.
