Wild Rice Athena
This mouthwatering Mediterranean-inspired recipe makes a delectable side dish or a light, meatless main dish.
- 2½ cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
- ¾ cup wild rice
- ¾ cup jasmine or other long-grain white rice
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Medium onion, chopped
- 2 Cloves garlic, minced or pressed
- 1 6.5 oz jar marinated artichoke heart
- 1 Tablesppon minced fresh oregano or ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- ½ cup thinly sliced green onions
- In a 4- to 5-quart saucepan, bring broth to a boil over high heat. Add Wild Rice; reduce heat to low, cover tightly and simmer until grains begin to open and feel tender to bite, about 45 minutes.
- Stir in white rice. Cover tightly, and simmer until white and wild rice are tender to bite and liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 more minutes.
- Drain artichoke hearts, reserving marinade. Chop artichoke hearts and add to onion and garlic along with the oregano and lemon peel. Stir often over medium heat until heated through. When rice is done, remove from heat and gently stir in onion-artichoke mixture, 1/4 cup reserved marinade, feta cheese and green onions. Serve immediately.
