Rose’s Brown & Wild Rice Pilaf with Dried Fruit & Pecans

AuthorJulie

¾ cup wild rice
¾ cup brown rice
4 cups vegetable or chicken stock or water
½ cup chopped toasted pecans
1-2 green onions, chopped
cup dried cranberries
cup dried chopped apricots
almost a whole bunch of fresh curly or flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Dressing (I always double this)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp thawed orange juice concentrate
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1-2 tsp sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced

1

In a medium pot, combine both types of rice with the stock or water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook for 40-45 minutes or just until the rice is
tender. Drain excess liquid in a colander, transfer to a large bowl and set aside to cool. Once the rice has cooled, stir in the pecans, green onions, cranberries, apricots and parsley.

2

To make the dressing, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients, or shake them all up in a jar. Pour over the salad and toss to coat.
