Wild Rice with Walnuts and Dates

With a bit of crunch from the nuts and a touch of sweetness from the dates, this hearty side dish pairs well with baked pork chops or chicken breasts.

  • 4 stalks celery, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 1 cup wild rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup pitted whole dates (such as medjool), snipped
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • In a 10-inch skillet cook celery and onion in hot margarine or butter about 10 minutes or until tender. Add uncooked wild rice; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add broth and water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 50 to 60 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
  • Stir in dates and walnuts. Cook, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes more or until heated through and remaining liquid is absorbed. Makes 6 to 8 side-dish servings.
