In this easy recipe, ordinary rice is dressed up with peas, shredded carrot and seasonings. This fresh-tasting and colorful side dish goes great with a variety of meaty main courses.—Doyle Rounds, Bridgewater, Virginia
My recipe uses a product native to the north-central United States, wild rice. Wild rice is not a rice at all, but rather a grass seed. It was a staple in the diet of the early American Indians and remains a favorite today because of its crunchy texture. This dish is especially good served with poultry.
WHEN MY MENU features poultry, I reach for this side dish recipe with its subtle sage flavor. The zesty onion and crunchy celery make a superb combination, and it's easy to make.
