Wild Rice Galettes

Wine Pairing: Rex Goliath Pinot Noir



2 Tablespoons butter
2 cups Lundberg brand wild rice mix
3 1/2 cups Swanson's chicken or vegetable stock
1 Tablespoon kosher salt


6 slices bacon (optional)
3/4 cup slivered almonds
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup scallions, sliced finely (white parts and lower third of green parts)
2 teaspoons lemon zest
3 Tablespoons canola oil
Kosher salt (approx. 1 teaspoon) for seasoning of rice mixture


Preheat: oven to 350°F.

Cook Rice: In a medium stockpot, heat butter until melted. Add rice and cook, stirring for one minute. Add stock and salt and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cover the saucepan. Cook until all stock is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cover the stockpot with a towel then the lid. Let sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the towel to soak up the extra moisture. Transfer rice to a large bowl to cool.

Cook Bacon (optional): Put the bacon on a cooling rack over a sheet pan. Transfer to the oven and cook until crisp, about 12-15 minutes. Let cool on the cooling rack. Once cool, crumble into a small bowl and set aside.

Toast Almonds: Spread the almonds on a sheet pan and toast until golden, about 10 minutes.

Assemble Galettes: Crack the eggs into a medium bowl; whisk in the flour and baking powder. Pour the egg mixture into the rice mixture. Add the scallions, lemon zest, almonds and bacon.

Form the Galettes: Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the rice mixture and form it into a 2-inch-wide pancake. Heat the canola oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat; cook the galettes on each side golden brown. (Turn gently to prevent crumbling.) Transfer to a cooling rack over a sheet pan. Serve immediately for crispy galettes, or reheat later in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.

Makes 16 small galettes to serve 8.
