  • 3 ounces wild rice (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 pound orzo pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1 ounce peas, thawed

  1. Cook the wild rice according to package directions; transfer to a large bowl. Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the orzo until al dente; drain. Add to the wild rice.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the pecans and sage and cook, stirring frequently, until the nuts are toasted and the mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the peas and chickpeas.
