Side Dish

Wild Rice with Pomegranate Seeds and Hazelnuts

1 1/2 cups wild rice, rinsed

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest

3 tablespoons fresh orange juice

1 cup pomegranate seeds, about 1 medium pomegranate

1 cup lightly toasted hazelnuts or pecans, coarsely chopped

Freshly ground pepper

Put wild rice in a large saucepan; cover with water by 1 inch. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until rice is tender and most grains have popped open, 40 to 60 minutes. (Add a little more water during cooking if rice gets dry.) Pour rice into a strainer; drain well.

In the same saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add green onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add cooked rice, orange zest and juice, pomegranate seeds and hazelnuts; fluff with a fork to blend. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Makes 8 servings.
