Expert Tips

If you can’t find chicken broth with garlic, make your own by finely chopping 2 cloves of garlic and stirring it into regular chicken broth. Two cups refrigerated Alfredo sauce can be used instead of the jarred sauce.

For the best flavor and texture, make sure the wild rice has cooked long enough to “pop” open to show its white insides. You may need to add more water during cooking.
