Recipe Notes

NOTE:  Cooking times for wild rice can vary.  The rice that I purchased is a wild rice blend that takes 15 minutes to cook.  Please be aware of this and check your package directions.  Any long grain rice such as long grain white rice, basmati, or jasmine rice will work for this recipe.
