White and Wild Rice

If you are looking for a relatively neutral side dish that still has an interesting texture, try this rice dish. The black flecks of wild rice and orange carrot dress up the plate, and there are no strong flavors to detract from a rich stew or other main dish.


Put wild rice in a microwave-proof casserole with 1 cup of water. Cook on high for 3 minutes and then medium-low for 10 minutes. Add the carrot, oil, salt, white rice additional water, and thyme. Stir well. Bring to a boil again, and then continue to cook on medium-low for 20-25 minutes until the water is absorbed, but the mixture is not dry.
