  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cups wild-rice blend (from two 6-ounce packages), seasoning packets discarded
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried and crushed
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups red seedless grapes, halved
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add rice and rosemary; cook, stirring, about 1 minute.

  2. Add broth and 1 cup water; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium-low heat; cover, and cook until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Add grapes and parsley; season with salt and pepper, and stir to combine.

Cook's Notes

    Made this and it turned out great. Sub olive oil for the butter and vegetable broth for the chicken broth to make vegan.
