Wild and Brown Rice Pilaf

Makes 6 servings

• 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
• ¼ cup minced yellow onion
• 1 Tbsp minced ginger
• ½ cup wild rice
• ¾ cup brown rice
• 1 tsp salt
• 2½ cups chicken or vegetable broth
• ½ cup thin-sliced scallions
• 1½ Tbsp sesame seeds (black or white)
• 1 Tbsp sesame oil

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a two-quart saucepot over medium heat. Add the onion and ginger and sauté until the onion is translucent, about two minutes.
  2. Add the wild and brown rice to the pan and toast, stirring constantly, until a nutty aroma arises, about one minute. Stir in the salt.
  3. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the broth has been absorbed by the rice and it is just tender to the bite, about 40 minutes.
  4. Fluff the rice with a fork and fold in the scallions, sesame seeds, and sesame oil. Keep warm until ready to serve.
