Here's a fun way to jazz up wild rice. Soy sauce and chicken bouillon add plenty of flavor, while celery, mushrooms and water chestnuts help dress it up. "My husband and two adult children love this delicious side dish," comments Joyce Bodle, Enumclaw, Washington. "It's convenient, too, because you can make it a day ahead."
While broccoli florets and chunks of red pepper give this dish plenty of color, it's the fresh gingerroot, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil that round out the flavor.
