For the rice:
1 cup dry wild rice
1 ¾ cup water or vegetable broth
For the dressing:
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
5 celery stalks, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups (8 oz package) white button mushrooms, roughly chopped
1 Teaspoon dried thyme
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup vegetable broth
¾ cup raw pecans, toasted and chopped
1 cup NatureSweet® Constellation™ tomatoes, halved
Fresh parsley, for garnish, optional


Combine rice and 1 ¾ cup water or broth in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover the saucepan and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for about 30-35 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery, then cook until they begin to soften, and onion becomes translucent, about 4 minutes.
Add garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Add mushrooms and sauté until they turn golden brown, about 6-8 more minutes.
Stir in thyme, parsley, salt, pepper, broth, and the cooked rice.
Remove from heat, then add pecans and Constellation™ tomatoes. Garnish with fresh herbs, such as parsley, if desired, and serve warm.
