Wild Rice Pilaf with Pecans and Dried Cranberries
Why This Recipe Works
The flavor of wild rice can be a little overwhelming, so we had to find a way to tame it for our wild rice pilaf recipe. We chose chicken broth as a simmering liquid, because its mild yet rich flavor tempered the rice’s muddy taste to a pleasant earthiness. To further temper the rice’s flavor in our pilaf recipe, we added white rice to the mixture.
