Serves 3-4 people
Use as many organic ingredients for optimum flavor.
1 1/2 cups organic wild rice
4 cups of water or homemade organic chicken stock
1/2 cup celery chopped
1 cup of onions chopped
1 cup fresh mushroom buttons
2 tablespoons of organic butter
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Rinse rice in a sieve under cold water. In a medium heavy bottom pan, cover rice with cold water (or organic chicken stock). Simmer until al dente or almost tender about 35-45 minutes (rice will be partially open). You don't want water or stock completely absorbed.
Stir vegetables into rice. Generously butter a baking dish. Transfer rice and vegetables to buttered dish. Bake rice, covered, 20 minutes or until tender and open.
