While my mom is in town a rarely cook, she takes care of everything. I miss her already…
Last month she made stuffed Peppers, and as a side dish I made a batch of wild rice with caramelized onions and balsamic vinegar.
Mom’s recipe I’ll post soon, but today I’m sharing this simple recipe as an amuse-bouche.
- 500 g of wild rice mix, made up of wild rice, two kinds of brown rice, and red rice.
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 3 white onions cut into julienne
- 500 ml balsamic vinegar.
Put the rice in a large pot, add cold water until it is cover and the water exceed 5 cm. Bring to a boil and cook covered for 15-20 minutes.
Strain and wash with cold water, letting it drain well again.
In a large skillet or a wok, pour a bit of olive oil and when it is hot, add the onion and sauté for a few minutes on high heat until browned. Pour the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook until reduced and the onions are caramelized.
Finally, add the rice, season with salt and stir well.
This rice is delicious hot as a side dish or it can be enjoyed cool as a salad or starter.
