Wild Rice Pilaf with Sweet Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts

November/December 2012

Wild rice is intensely aromatic so it’s a great match for the bold flavors of saffron and Madeira in this wild rice pilaf recipe. Roasted sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts studded on top give it a festive look and help make it filling enough for a vegetarian main dish.

Side Dish

I thought this was a decent side dish. we love vegetable based main dishes so I was hoping it would be more of a main course. but it would be best as as side dish. This has rich earthy flavor, I can't taste the saffron. Probably good potluck dish.

basic ingredients, wild rice, vegetarian
A new favorite

We eat meat but are trying to include healthy vegetarian choices that are so good we don't miss the meat. This meats :) the requirement. Very tasty with a good combination of vegetables. The brussel sprouts and sweet potato add to the flavor depth and do not detract. We did not miss the meat. This stores easily and in fact my husband and I had it for lunch every day for 4 days. I topped it with Sriracha because I like spicy. Highly recommend

Delicious and nutritious
Was delicious and even better next day

I added some chicken-sausage to make it a main dish but you could easily add some beans to keep it veg-friendly

Yummy, healthy
Basice dish is great but Ditch the B. Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

The basic recipe is delicious and only gets better the next day and is good enough to stand on its own. The addition of the sweet potatoes is passable but the brussel sprouts detract and overwhelm the more subtle flavors of the main ingredients.

Quick & easy

I respectfully disagree -

I respectfully disagree - it's a matter of taste, I guess - I loved what the Brussel Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes added!
