If you can't find precooked wild rice, substitute boil-in-bag or precooked brown rice.
1 (8.5-ounce) package precooked wild rice (such as Archer Farms)
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup pine nuts
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
Prepare rice according to the package directions.
Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and quartered cherry tomatoes to pan; cook 8 minutes or until tomatoes are tender, stirring frequently. Stir in rice, basil, pepper, and salt; cook 1 minute.
I purchased the Archer Farms precooked wild rice for this recipe and after preparing it and tasting it, I tossed it in the trash. I love wild rice, but did not care for that wild rice at all. I then purchased my usual brand of wild rice and made this dish as directed. I liked the combination of tomato, butter, pine nuts and basil with the rice. I would make this again for a simple side dish. I'll never use precooked wild rice, though.
