Cranberry Wild Rice Pilaf

I've been making this tasty side dish for years. I believe it's from a Taste of Home magazine. I love the flavors of this easy dish. It's a great way to use some healthy ingredients with lots of great flavors!-Sarah

3/4 cup uncooked wild rice (or wild rice blend)
3 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup barley
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup raisins
1 T. butter
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • Rinse and drain rice, place in a saucepan. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, stir in barley, dried fruit and butter.
  • Spoon into greased casserole dish. Cover and bake at 325 degrees 55 minutes. Until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Add almonds and fluff with a fork.
  • Taste and add salt if needed, depends on the strength of the broth.
