Wild Rice with Dried Apricots & Pistachios

December 2005/January 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (19 votes)

Colorful apricots, scallions and pistachios make this vibrant dish worthy of any holiday table. Since wild rice (really a grass) does not absorb liquid to the extent that true rice and other grains do, cook it in boiling water and saute the vegetables separately so they stay tender-crisp.

This recipe calls for "7" cups of water to 1 cup of rice. It should read 2 cups of water unless you want the rice to cook for 2-3 hrs. and become mush.

Crunchy, flavorful, and easy

I made this for a potluck dinner, and it was very well received, tasted delicious and looks elegant. I substituted chopped pecans for the pistachios but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I would add some salt to the wild rice cooking water and probably add more dried apricots as I found their flavor barely noticeable.

good at almost any temperature

As Delicious as it is Colorful

I'll probably use less dried apricots next time as I found it a little too sweet but other than that, this was a delicious dish. I loved the colors and I've yet to make a wild rice dish from this site that I haven't loved!

Simple to make, healthy, bright
