Wild Rice Pilaf with Goldenberries

 Mmmmm...  Salty, tart and yet slightly sweet, chewy, wholesome, original, filling, and beautiful, this wild rice pilaf is truly a keeper recipe.  The addition of dry goldenberries to the dish makes it just that much more delicious and unique.  The goldenberries plump out while cooking but intensify in flavor, becoming sweeter and nicely complementing the savoriness of the rice.  The pilaf comes out tasting like you've spent hours slaving over a hot stove.  Who knew it could be so easy to prepare it?

To make the pilaf, you will need:
  • 1-1.5 cups of wild rice
  • 2 oz. or so of dried goldenberries
  • sweetener to taste (optional, I used one packet of stevia)
  • 1-2 cubes of vegetable bullion
  • 3-4 cups milk of choice (I used almond)
  1. Put everything into a small (1.5 qt) slow cooker.  Be sure the cooker is 2/3 full.  If you want to use a different size cooker, scale your ingredients accordingly.
  2. Cook on low until the wild rice achieves a desired level of doneness.
  3. Stir well.
  4. Enjoy!
