Just made this tonight - I LOVED this rice! I made the Honey Mustard Pork (TOH recipe) and needed wild rice, but did not have over an hour to cook it, so I used a Near East Long Grain and Wild Rice original box which only took 30 minutes, and I just left out the "spice packet" for the rice. I also used a little diced white onion (didn't have any green) and added a diced apple while sauteing the onion, and I didn't have pine nuts, so I used toasted walnuts, which along with the apple and cranberries was awesome! I think you can play with this recipe a little - but the base is very good. I will be sure to add it to many fall meals.
