Rosemary Infused Wild Rice with Green Beans

Ingredients:

1 cup wild rice

4 cups water or stock with chopped rosemary (dried or fresh)

1 Tablespoon or Liquid Gold Rosemary Fused Olive Oil

12 beans or snap peas trimmed and washed

Pinch of Salt

Instructions:

1. Place the wild rice in a fine mesh strainer and rinse in sink under cold running water. Shake to drain.

2. Place the rice in the sauce pan and add 4 cups of water or stock (chicken or vegetable), along with a pinch of salt (unless stock is salty enough). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.

3.When water has reached a boil, lower the heat to maintain a slow and steady simmer. Keep pot covered.

4. Cook at a simmer for 45 minutes. Check the rice. It should be chewy and some of the grains will have burst open. It may need an  additional 10-15 minutes - keep checking the rice and stop cooking when the grains are tender.

5. In this time, blanch beans or peas in boiling salted water for 5 minutes to remove crispness.

6. When rice is done, pour it into strainer to drain off any remaining liquid.

7. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve, or add it to any number of dishes for a delicious nutty taste and chewy texture.

8. To finish heat up skillet with oil, and toss the peas or beans until hot and covered with oil.
