Wild Rice with Shitake Mushrooms and PecansCuisinart Original Recipe
4 cups water
3/4 cup wild rice
1-1/2 tablespoons margarine or butter, divided
1/2 cup pecans
1 celery rib, peeled, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
3 ounces shitake mushrooms, cleaned, stems trimmed
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place water in a Cuisinart® Anodized Non-Stick 2-3/4 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, add rice and simmer, partially covered, until tender, about 30 minutes.
While rice is cooking melt 1/2 tablespoon margarine in a Cuisinart® Anodized Non-Stick 3-1/2-quart sauté pan over medium heat. Add pecans and toast, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
Place pecans in a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the metal blade and pulse to coarsely chop, about 6 times. Reserve. Add celery and onion; pulse to coarsely chop, about 4 - 5 times. Leave in work bowl.
Insert the standard slicing disc. Place the mushrooms in the large feed tube and slice using light pressure.
About 5 minutes before the rice is done, heat remaining 1 tablespoon margarine in the sauté pan over medium heat. Add vegetables and cook, stirring, until tender, about 3 - 4 minutes.
Drain rice; add rice and pecans to skillet and cook until heated through, about 3 - 4 minutes. Season with pepper and salt. Serve warm
