  • Wild rice is a hearty side that goes with almost any entrée. Add Fisher® Sliced Almonds for a unique twist on this tasty dish. 


  • 2 cups wild rice (12 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds (3 ½ ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Rinse rice in a large sieve under cold water, then drain.
  2. Heat oil in a 5-quart heavy pot over moderate heat until hot, but not smoking, then cook onion, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in broth and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until rice is tender (grains will split open), 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Drain well in sieve and transfer to a bowl.
  4. While rice is cooking, melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over moderate heat, then cook almonds, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add almonds, salt, and pepper to rice and stir gently to combine.
