1 cup cooked wild rice
1/4 cup diced fully cooked lean ham
1-1/2 teaspoons diced pimientos
1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half
1 tablespoon sliced almonds, toasted, optional
In a large saucepan, saute the onion, celery, mushrooms and green onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour and pepper until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat. Stir in the rice, ham and pimientos; heat through. Stir in half-and-half; heat through (do not boil). Sprinkle with almonds if desired.
