cranberries and a bowl of wild rice
Cook Time 1.5 hrs.
Serves 4
  • ½ cup brown rice
  • ½ cup wild rice
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • ½ cup dried cranberries, reconstituted in warm water
  • 1 shallot, sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Salt (optional) and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
