Slow Cooker Cherry Almond Wild Rice

  • Cooking Time:

    5 Hours + 15 Minutes
  • Servings:



1.5 c. uncooked wild rice
1 T. but­ter, melt­ed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pep­per
4 medi­um green onions, chopped
28oz. veg­etable broth
4oz. can sliced mush­rooms (no need to drain)
1/2 c. toast­ed sliv­ered almonds
1/3 c. dried cher­ries

I LOVE cher­ries!  The fla­vor brings back mem­o­ries of fam­i­ly trips to Tra­verse City, MI where you can stop and get fresh-picked cher­ries at tiny road­side stands and just drop your mon­ey in a con­tain­er the farmer leaves out front.  (hon­or sys­tem!)  Since the sea­son is short (and cook­ing with fresh cher­ries can be the “pits”) I have learned to love dried cher­ries too.  In this recipe, the cher­ries com­ple­ment the toast­ed almonds well and real­ly kick the wild rice up a notch.  If you can’t find toast­ed almonds, you can buy sliv­ered almonds and toast them in a skil­let over medi­um heat. — about 5 min­utes, mov­ing the skil­let fre­quent­ly.

  1. Mix all ingre­di­ents except almonds and cher­ries in your slow cook­er.
  2. Cov­er. Crock on LOW for about 5 hours or until the wild rice is ten­der.
  3. Mix almonds and cher­ries into the wild rice in the slow cook­er.
  4. Cov­er. Crock on LOW for an addi­tion­al 15 min­utes.


Hap­py Crock­ing!
