  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell peppers
  • 1 cup medium or long-grain rice
  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, vegetable broth, or water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped, dried plums
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted, unblanched almonds


In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and peppers; cook stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until vegetables start to soften. Add brown and wild rice; stir until rice is hot. Add broth and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, about 50 to 60 minutes or until liquid is completely absorbed.
