Wild Rice with Dried Apricots and Pistachios

Ingredients

7 cups water

1 cup wild rice

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 small red onion

1 medium red bell pepper

2 cloves garlic

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 cup dried apricots

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper

2/3 cup thinly sliced scallion greens

1/3 cup shelled pistachios

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add wild rice, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook at a lively simmer until the grains are tender and starting to split, 45 to 55 minutes. Drain in a fine sieve.

2. Shortly before the wild rice is ready, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add bell pepper, garlic and cumin; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add apricots, orange juice, salt and pepper; simmer until the apricots have plumped and the liquid has reduced slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the wild rice. Remove from the heat and stir in scallion greens. Serve topped with chopped pistachios
