Wild rice is one of the best sources of healthy carbs, minerals, and nutrition — yet it’s not always the most delicious. This recipe, however, will surprise you with its flavor, ease of preparation, and versatility. Enjoy!
4 ounces wild rice
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1 cup sun dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/4 cup minced parsley
Cook the rice in an abundant amount of boiling salted water in a large pot for 35 to 45 minutes or until the grains have almost doubled in size and are tender, but still chewy. Toast the pine nuts lightly (dry skillet) until tan and add to rice. Toss gently to mix.
Makes four servings.
