I don't use wild rice too often. I don't know why, it tastes awesome and it's so pretty.
We ate this with a bit of chicken but it would stand alone by itself as a meal. I had to make chicken for hubs though. :-)
The best part for me was the leftovers. I made it into an omelet for the next couple of mornings with some asiago cheese. Delicious!
