Ingredients

    1 cup uncooked wild rice
    1 cup chicken broth
    1-1/3 cup water
    1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
    1/2 large onion, diced
    3 stalks celery, diced
    1/2 lb. sliced mushrooms
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. black pepper, black
    1/2 tsp. dried thyme
    1/2 tsp. dried marjoram, dried
    1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
    2 links chicken Italian sausage, sliced

Tips

Wild rice takes a long time to cook, but does not need tending while it simmers. To reduce total cooking time, buy pre-cooked wild rice.


Directions

Bring wild rice, broth, and water to a boil in medium saucepan; reduce heat and simmer until water is absorbed, about 45 minutes.

When wild rice is almost done, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and celery and saute until onions begin to turn translucent. Add mushrooms and all seasonings. Continue to saute until vegetables have cooked down and most liquid has evaporated.

When wild rice is fully cooked, turn off heat and add sauteed vegetables to saucepan, folding ingredients together.

Meanwhile, turn up the heat under the now-empty skillet to medium high and add the sliced chicken sausage, browning all sides. Add wild rice and vegetable mixture back to skillet and briefly saute all ingredients together until any remaining liquid has evaporated.

Serving Size: Makes 5 1-cup servings.
