1 cup wild rice, rinsed and drained
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 med. onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp. minced fresh thyme
2 tsp. minced fresh marjoram
1/2 cup dried unsweetened cherries
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup toasted almond slivers


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to boiling. Add the rice and salt and return to boiling. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the rice is tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion for 7 to 8 minutes, until soft. Add the celery and carrots and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, and marjoram and sauté for 1 minute; set aside until the rice is cooked.
  3. Toss the cooked rice with the vegetable mixture. Stir in the cherries, pepper, parsley, and almonds. Serve warm or at room temperature.
