Vegetables give this easy wild rice dish flavor and slivered toasted almonds give it extra crunch. Southern cooking is known for being fried in butter and lard but this is a delicious, light, and healthy recipe that'll fill you right up.
Melt butter in a large heavy skillet.
Sauté wild rice, onion, celery, carrots, and mushrooms until vegetables are golden brown.
Add chicken broth and poultry seasoning.
Cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until the rice is tender.
Taste and add salt and pepper.
Top with toasted slivered almonds just before serving.
