Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 3 sweet red peppers
  • 2 fennel bulbs
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons crumbled dried rosemary
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 1 1/4 cup basmati rice

Method

Core and seed red peppers; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces and place in large bowl. Trim off top of fennel; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks and add to bowl. Add onions, garlic, oil, rosemary, 3/4 tsp (4 mL) of the salt and pepper; toss well. Spread on large rimmed baking sheet; roast in 425°F (220°C) oven for about 1 hour or until browned and tender.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring 2 cups (500 mL) water, stock, wild rice and remaining salt to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add basmati rice; simmer, covered, until all rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to bowl.
