Wild rice is a gluten-free, nutritious grain with its own distinct taste and texture, which thrives best in large paddy environments that contain aquatic environments.
To cook it, simply combine with hot water and allow to simmer. Drain after completion and set aside.
Roasted chicken is the centerpiece of this recipe. For extra ease and aesthetic value, try trussing it (using twine to wrap beneath and around it to form an X and tie the legs together), which helps your bird roast more evenly while looking beautiful! Trussing will ensure an even roast while looking beautiful too!

Goat cheese adds the perfect sweet-and-tangy twist to this hearty Fall salad, pairing perfectly with warm roasted vegetables, lean chicken breasts and sweet apples in this recipe.
Even though all goat cheese is created from lait de chevre (goat milk), not all varieties of it are the same. Fresh chevre is full of moisture and features soft milky flavors; aged chevre has a crumbly texture with more intense flavors; aged versions often feature an acidity reducer such as ash to speed the ripening process faster.
Almonds make a delicious addition to snack mixes, fruit crisps, granola bars, salads and appetizer trays & bento boxes.
Once butter has melted in a skillet over medium heat, begin stirring continuously to ensure even browning of almonds. Transfer almonds onto a plate lined with paper toweling (to catch any extra browned butter), sprinkle with salt and let cool before cutting into 2-cup portions. Makes 2 cups.
Homemade balsamic vinaigrette is at the core of this Sweetgreen harvest bowl recipe. Store-bought salad dressings can contain harmful sulfates, preservatives, sugar and sodium levels that make this treat less than healthful; whisking your own vinaigrette not only tastes amazing, but is better for you too!
