Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 to 4 Tbs. soy margarine or butter
  • 2 medium shallots, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup drained, canned apricot halves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Cook rice with water and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan, covered, until grains split open, about 60 minutes. Drain any excess water and allow rice to cool.

Melt margarine or butter in a small skillet; add shallots and garlic, and cook, stirring often, 2 minutes. Transfer vegetables to a medium bowl and add rice, apricots, parsley, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; mix well.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Transfer rice mixture to a medium baking dish, cover and bake 15 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
