Reviews for Wild Rice Pilaf Bake
"I have very picky little eaters and they absolutely LOVED this dish. I didn't add the broccoli and I diced the carrots into very small pieces. I used multi-grain rice mixture and added a teaspoon of Italian seasoning, dried sage and 2 celery stalk..YUMMO!! This does take about 30-40 minutes longer to bake than recipe says but so worth it!! I too used less butter and it was perfect."
"My guests loved it!"
"Great recipe. May only tip is to cook the wild rice longer si that it "pops"."
"Changed a bit to work for "regular" size meals: 1/3 c wild rice, 3/4 c parboiled (ie Uncle Ben's) rice, 2 c water + 1 tsp chicken stock base, 2 stalks celery, 1 carrot, 1 Tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp rosemary, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1.5 c frozen broc florets. Left out onion (I don't eat it). Also reduced butter - original is ok for holidays but a bit much for week nites!"
"Next time I will reduce the amount of butter - otherwise a great recipe."
