Wild Rice with Roasted Grapes, Pecans, and Sage
Yield: Servings: 6 to 8
Maple-glazed pecans and balsamic-roasted grapes elevate this wild rice side dish to delicious new heights. Look for balsamic glaze near the vinegars at the supermarket.
1 cup wild rice
2 cups seedless grapes, preferably a mix of colors
1 Tbs. balsamic glaze
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 medium shallot, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 Tbs. pure maple syrup
2 tsp. chopped fresh sage
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Bring 1 quart of water to a boil in a 4-quart saucepan. Add the rice and 1 tsp. salt, turn the heat down to maintain a gentle simmer, cover, and cook until the grains are tender but not split open, 45 to 55 minutes. Drain in a colander.
Meanwhile, position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F.
