Wild Rice and Barley Pilaf

The combined benefits of barley and wild rice result in a healthy recipe for fruited pilaf that goes well with pork or poultry.

  • 3/4 cup wild rice
  • 1/2 cup regular barley
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 14-ounce cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, snipped dried apricots, dried tart cherries and/or currants
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • Rinse wild rice with cold water; drain. In a large saucepan, cook and stir rice and barley in hot butter over medium heat for 3 minutes. Carefully add broth; bring to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until rice and barley are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat.
  • Stir dried fruit into the rice mixture; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in almonds before serving.
  • Makes 8 (2/3 cup) servings
