Wild Rice Starter
In a 4- to 5-quart saucepan, bring broth to a boil over high heat. Add wild rice; reduce heat to low and cover tightly. Simmer until grains begin to open and feel tender to bite, about 45 minutes. Add white rice to pan; cover tightly and simmer until white and wild rice are tender to bite and liquid is absorbed, about 20 to 25 minutes.
While white and wild rice cook, add olive oil to a 10-to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add onion and garlic. Stir often until onion has soften and lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. When rice is done, remove from heat and gently stir in onion and garlic mixture. Transfer to a serving bowl.
