About this Recipe

This Wild Rice Pilaf is the perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving table or any weeknight dinner. This recipe uses chopped pecans, but feel free to use any tree nut you have on hand instead -- Chef Erin loves almonds or hazelnuts. To make this dish vegetarian-friendly, simply use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions
