1/2

1/2
cup uncooked wild rice
1/4
cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4
cup butter, melted, or canola or soybean oil
2
teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
6
medium green onions, thinly sliced (6 tablespoons)
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
2
cans (14 ounces each) vegetable broth
1
jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, undrained

Tips  

Use this scrumptious grain filling to stuff bell pepper shells. Steam cleaned bell pepper halves (any color that you are in the mood for) just until tender so that they still hold their shape. Spoon the hot cooked grain mixture into the halves, and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese.

Canola oil is recommended for its heart-healthy benefits when you are sautéing or baking. Because this recipe is so low in fat and because the butter imparts a wonderful flavor to the grains, butter is listed first in the ingredient in this recipe. If you prefer to use canola oil, that also works very well in this tasty side dish.
