1/2 c Wild rice
1 1/3 c -Water; cold
1 ts Chicken bouillon
2 Bacon slice
1/2 c Mushrooms; sliced
2 tb Green onion
Pour cold rice over rice in strainer and lift rice with fingers (to
remove any impurities).
Combine rice and 1 1/3 cups water and bouillon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover and simmer 60 minutes.
Meanwhile cook bacon partially and add mushrooms, green onion and thyme. Cook till bacon is crisp and mushrooms soft. Drain off fat.
Add to cooked rice. Season with pepper. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
Time consuming and expensive. Be prepared to give wild rice as much cooking time as possible, occasionally it will require a bit more time as it absorbs water more slowly than regular rice.
