with Red Onion Chutney

Wild Rice-Pecan Patties with Red Onion Chutney

  • Prep time: 40 minutes
  • Start to finish: 40 minutes
  • 5 Servings (2 patties and
         2 tablespoons chutney each)
  • Whole grain serving: 1/2


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced red onion (1 large)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup diced dried fruit and raisin mixture
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  • 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs (about 1-1/2 slices bread)
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 jar (2.5 oz) mushroom pieces and stems, drained, finely chopped
  • 1 jar (2 oz) diced pimientos, drained
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Cook onion in oil about 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in remaining chutney ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cook 20 to 25 minutes or until dried fruits are plump and mixture has thickened; remove from heat.

2 Meanwhile, cook wild rice in water as directed on package, or see page 16 of the book; drain if necessary. In large bowl, mix cooked wild rice and remaining patty ingredients except oil.

3 In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Scoop wild rice mixture by 1/3 cupfuls into skillet; flatten to 1/2 inch. Cook about 3 minutes on each side or until light brown. Remove patties from skillet; cover and keep warm while cooking remaining patties. Serve with chutney.

Betty Tip

You can make Wild Rice-Corn Patties. Just substitute 1/3 cup frozen (thawed) whole kernel corn for the pecans.
