This was very easy and tasty. It's also a very flexible recipe and you can make it better with a little customization for your tastes. I used every ingredient this recipe called for, but added chopped cremini mushrooms, herbs de provence, and a dash of white pepper. It came out delicious. Next time, I may try some type of nut (maybe chopped walnuts or slivered almonds).

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.

We enjoyed the addition of some vegetables in this pilaf. Wonderful side dish for pork or chicken.

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.
