Wild Rice and Pumpkin Seed Pilaf

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

Wild rice and brown rice are good companions in a pilaf: first, because they have similar chewy textures, but second because they both take about the same amount of time to cook. A third benefit is that using a mixture stretches the expensive wild rice with a less expensive grain.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, such as olive or canola oil

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 carrot, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise

¾ cup wild rice (4 ounces)

½ cup brown rice

2 cups water
