Substitution
Quick-cooking wild rice is faster to prepare than regular wild rice and is equally delicious. If you can't find wild rice, try a wild rice blend or brown rice instead.
Success Tip
To toast almonds, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350° oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
