Day 172: Crockpot Wild Rice Casserole

Day 172.

This recipe was awesome! Rice in the crockpot? Yes, please!

Here's what you'll need.
Photobucket
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
1/2 cup uncooked wild rice
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
4 cups water
3-4 green onions
1/4 cup butter
Dried parsley

Photobucket
Place the rice into the slow cooker.

Photobucket
Add the onion soup mix to the water.

Photobucket
Stir well.

Photobucket
Add to the rice.

Photobucket
Throw in some dried parsley. I used a couple teaspoons worth.

Photobucket
Dice the green onions.

Photobucket
Add those to the crockpot.

Photobucket
Melt the butter in a microwave-safe dish.

Photobucket
Add that to the pot as well and stir.

Photobucket
Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Photobucket
It should look something like this.

Photobucket
We had some leftover chicken that needed used up, so I heated it in a skillet and threw it in with the rice.

Photobucket
Ta-da!

***********************************
I really liked the flavor of this dish. My only issue was that some of the rice was a bit crunchy. Next time, I may not add the wild rice and just use white, as it seemed the wild rice was what was not quite finished.
