Directions:
Heat some butter (1-2 Tbsp.) in a skillet over high heat. (You can also use olive oil, or a combo of oil and butter). Add the orzo and cook while stirring until the pasta toasts and turns brown.
Add the wild rice mix.
Stir to coat the grains with the butter.
Add some "stock." (This could be organic, free-range chicken broth, or it could be a bouillon cube and water.) Have about 4 cups ready--you may not need all of it, or you may need a little more.
Add 2 cups of the liquid to the rice/pasta. As the liquid evaporates or is absorbed, add more liquid until the rice/pasta is fully cooked.
Let it stand for a few minutes before serving
