Serve up a dressed up version of rice with my fruit & nut wild rice recipe.  This is easy and so delicious – it makes a great side dish for a dinner party or for the holiday pot luck gatherings.  Bon Appetit!

Fruit & Nut Wild Rice

1 box long grain and wild rice (Uncle Ben’s), with seasoning pack
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 (7 oz) package mixed dried fruit(I actually used several snack packs so I had a combination of dried raisins, dried berries, and dried tropical fruit)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
1/4 tsp pepper
Cook rice according to package directions substituting the 1/2 cup chicken broth for 1/2 cup water called for. Just as water & rice come to a boil, add in the onion, celery, and dried fruit. Continue with package directions. Once rice is cooked, stir in nuts and pepper and serve
