This wild rice pilaf gives you a little more bang or your buck than the average starch side. Wild rice is chewy and nutty giving off more flavor than brown or white rice. The cranberries and almonds provide a nice texture and parsley, ginger and lemon juice add a zippy freshness. This side is extremely simple to prepare and can be added to any My Cook either Multi-Zone or Slow Cook that doesn’t already use the starch pan. We recommend pairing the Wild Rice with our Stuffing recipe, Creamed Spinach and Kale, Tturkey Casserole or any dish of your choosing for an additional flavor pop during your holiday meal.
