Serves 4-6
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1 stalk celery, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups wild rice blend
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup toasted pecans
  • 1 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, warm oil. Add onion and celery and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add rice and stir for about 1 minute, then add wine and cook until almost evaporated. Add broth, bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until liquid has evaporated and rice is tender, 35-45 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in pecans, cherries, and green onions. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
