Harvest Wild Rice (with Roasted Chicken)
What You’ll Need:
1 small onion, minced
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups butternut squash, peeled & cubed
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups cooked wild rice
2 cups baby kale
1 cup unpeeled apple, chopped
½ cup shredded Provolone cheese (optional)
salt & pepper to taste
What You’ll Do:
Sauté the onion and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat until the onions are soft and translucent. Add the squash and thyme; sauté for 5-8 minutes, until the squash is fork-tender. Add the baby kale and wild rice and stir to combine. Add the apples last so they stay crispy. Add the optional cheese and stir a few times to get it melted into the ingredients.
*Adding the cheese helps keep the mixture together. The dish is just as delicious if you forego adding the cheese.
