Wild Rice with Shallots and Toasted Almonds
4 cups water
3/4 cup wild rice
1-1/2 tablespoons margarine or butter, divided
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup fresh parsley
3 shallots, peeled and cut in half
1 celery rib, peeled, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
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 almonds and toast, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
Place almonds in a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the metal blade and pulse to coarsely chop, about 6 times. Reserve. Add parsley and process until finely chopped, about 10 seconds. Reserve. Add shallots and celery; pulse to coarsely chop, about 4 - 5 times. Leave in work bowl.
About 5 minutes before the rice is done, heat remaining 1 tablespoon margarine in the sauté pan over medium heat. Add shallots and celery; cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3 - 4 minutes. Drain rice; add rice and almonds to sauté pan and cook until heated through, about 3 - 4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and season with pepper and salt. Serve warm.
