  • ½ cup chopped yellow onion
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups wild rice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; add onion and immediately reduce heat to low. Cook onion in hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour water into the saucepan; add rice and salt. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to low, and place a lid on the pan. Simmer rice until tender, about 50 minutes.
  3. Drain rice and transfer to a bowl. Stir butter and scallions into the rice; season with salt and pepper.
Mealthy tip:

Use your favorite kind of rice instead of wild rice if desired - just adjust the cook time accordingly.

Really good pilaf. Not sure what took me so long to try wild rice? It has a great nutty flavor that I really like. The green onions also give it a nice flavor.
