Rather than browning the rice in butter, cook it like pasta, in plenty of water, then drain it. Sweat the leeks in a tiny amount of butter, then toss everything together. Studded with dried fruits and leeks, this dish boasts the mosaic look and texture of a classic pilaf.

Recipe Ingredients for Wild Rice with Dried Fruit

4 ounces wild rice
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup leek
6 tablespoons low-sodium Chicken broth
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped dried pears

Recipe Directions for Wild Rice with Dried Fruit

  1. 1. In a 2-quart pot of boiling salted water, add the rice and cook until the grains begin to puff and break open, about 40 minutes to 1 hour. Drain and refresh in cold water. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. 2. Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan. Add the leek and cook for 1 minute. Add 3 tablespoons of the stock, the cranberries, and pears and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 8 minutes. Add the rice and remaining stock, raise the heat to high, and cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
