Cranberry Apple Pecan Wild Rice Pilaf
This Cranberry Apple Pecan Wild Rice Pilaf creates a perfect side dish to serve with any main course at Christmas dinner. Needless to say, Christmas dinner is the showtime for the main dish. But even a meaty main needs a side dish support, and I do believe it should be scrumptious too.
Pilaf is a dish usually cooked with rice and various seasonings. To make this recipe a fitting addition to the holiday menu, I add the cranberries and pecans and use the blend of wild rice, long-grain white rice, and whole-grain rice. This recipe combines sweet and savory flavors to satisfy and stimulate every taste bud!
To make the Cranberry Apple Pecan Wild Rice Pilaf, you will need the following ingredients:
