Wild Rice Mushroom Pilaf

I found a wild rice blend in the bulk section of our grocery store and decided to try it. It made a very nice pilaf that goes well with almost anything. This serves 8-10 but can easily be halved.
  • 2 cups wild rice blend
  • 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 shallots, minced (or 1/2 cup chopped onion)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb of brown mushrooms sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground sage
  1. Saute minced shallots, garlic and mushrooms in butter until softened.
  2. Add the sage and rice. Stir the rice well to coat it in the butter. 
  3. Add the broth bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Take off the heat and let stand for 5 minutes, stir the rice adding fresh parsley.
