Wild Rice and Mushroom Pilaf

wild rice pilaf by leslie cerier

Earthy flavored, gluten-free wild rice combines beautifully with aromatic vegetables and garlic for a pilaf that can also be served stuffed into a winter squash. Feel free to choose between delicious organic red palm oil or organic extra virgin olive oil. If you’ve got some small baked squashes, such as acorn, this makes a lovely stuffing.
