Vegetable Wild Rice Skillet

Robyn Bruce


I don't know about you, but I love rice. Any kind of rice. Wild rice, though, is a nice change from white rice once in awhile. This recipe is so quick and easy. Preparation time is minimal. This is meant to be a side dish, but I have, on occasion, doubled the recipe and added leftover cooked, cubed chicken to it and I turned it into a main dish. (Or you can get a rotisserie chicken and cut some of it up and add to it.) I love versatility in a recipe and this one affords you the opportunity to do that.
