Wild rice with celery and onions

I shared the recipe for fried walleye the other day that I received from my relatives from the North. Now I will share a simple wild rice side dish from those same generous people! Thank you, Dolores, for sharing your Northern Minnesotan recipes!

In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat.


3 large celery stalks, sliced

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft.

In a large bowl, combine:

Cooked celery and onions

2 cups cooked wild rice, warmed

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Mix well and serve warm!

This is so easy to make, and it is a great simple side for a main dish that is bursting with flavor.
