I didn't have sliced almonds so I omitted them in this recipe. It was very good, even without them although I'm sure the crunch would have made it even better! http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/wild_rice_with_shiitakes_toasted_almonds.html

Recipe Ingredients for Wild Rice with Shiitakes

2 1/4 cups water
2 tsp Chicken Base
2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom
1 cup wild rice
1 teaspoon butter
1 cup,+chopped scallions
1 Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Recipe Directions for Wild Rice with Shiitakes

  1. 1. Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Stir in mushrooms and wild rice. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to very low, cover, and simmer until the rice has "blossomed" and is just tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Drain any remaining liquid and transfer the rice to a serving bowl.

  2. 2. Meanwhile, toast almonds in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until golden brown and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

  3. 3. About 5 minutes before the rice is done, melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add scallions and cook, stirring often, until softened and still bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the scallions, almonds and pepper into the rice. Serve warm.
