Ingredients

  • 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup diced Red Delicious apple
  • 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • mint springs(optional)

Preparation

  1. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add rice; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°.
  3. Combine the sweet potato and 1/2 teaspoon oil in a bowl, tossing well to coat. Arrange sweet potato in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes, turning once.
  4. Combine diced apples with orange juice concentrate in a small bowl. Drain, reserving concentrate. Combine 1 tablespoon oil and reserved concentrate; stir well with a whisk.
  5. Combine rice, concentrate mixture, apples, green onions, and raisins; gently stir in potato. Cover and chill 1 hour. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
