Makes 4 serving

  • 3½ cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ¾ cup California wild rice
  • ¾ cup jasmine or other long-grain white rice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 6.5 ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, chopped, reserving liquid
  • 1 Tablespoon minced, fresh oregano or ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions
Cooking Instructions:

Rinse wild rice in a colander under cool running water until water runs clear. Add wild rice to boiling broth (or water with 2 teaspoons salt) in a 1½ – quart saucepan and return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 45 to 50 minutes, or until kernels burst and wild rice is tender. Drain excess liquid, if necessary, and cool wild rice. You should have 2 cups cooked wild rice.

Meanwhile, trim off the stems, fibrous lower leaves and prickly tops from the artichokes. Rub all cut surfaces with the lemon wedge. Place artichokes in a steamer and steam over boiling water for about 30 minutes, or until a petal near center pulls out easily. Remove from steamer, cut each artichoke in half lengthwise and scrape out fuzzy choke. Set halves aside.

Place a wok or sauté pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add vegetable oil, stirring to coat. Add ham, bell pepper and green onions; stir-fry for 1 minute. Add cooked wild rice, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and white pepper and toss to mix well. Fill artichoke halves with stir-fried wild rice mixture. Serve warm.
