Avocado adds a creamy consistency to this flavorful rice dish. A little goes a long way with sun-dried tomatoes, which bring a blend of sweet and savory to the plate.
Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
  • 1 1/4 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
Method: 
Soak sun-dried tomatoes in hot water for 15 minutes to soften them, then drain and chop. 

Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked through, about 50 minutes. 

Drain rice and place in a large mixing bowl. Add avocado, sundried tomatoes, celery, pine nuts, basil, lemon juice and zest to rice and stir until thoroughly combined.
