Company Rice

I hope that you're enjoying Holiday Side Dishes Week as much as I am!  For my second recipe,  I made Company Rice from Taste of Home.  Since I changed my eating habits last year, I have been eating significantly more rice than I ever have in my life.  It's really been challenging to find ways to change it up!

I used Bemuda onion because it was what I had on hand, plus it added a pretty color to the dish. I changed the ratio of long grain to wild to use up what I had in the cabinet.  I absolutely loved all the flavors and textures of this one!  Thank you so much to Jayne S. for sharing her recipe!

Company Rice
1 celery rib, thinly sliced
1 large carrot, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
5 cups chicken broth
1 cup uncooked wild rice
1 cup uncooked long grain rice (I used long grain brown)
2/3 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

In a large saucepan, saute the celery, carrot and onion in butter until tender. Stir in broth and wild rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25 minutes.

Add long grain rice; cover and simmer 20 minutes longer. Stir in cherries; cook until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes longer. Just before serving, stir in pecans.
