You could add more zucchini and cut down the amount of rice and cheese if you wanted to make this rice healthier. The addition of the cheese kind of makes it like a quick, easy version of risotto without the constant stirring. The cheese gives it a nice creaminess, which I really liked. If you like zucchini, I highly recommend this recipe!
Hearty and healthy wild rice with fresh or dried cranberries.
Wild rice is an aquatic, high fiber, high protein grain that is also high in niacin and other B-vitamins. It grows in lake beds and river beds in North America, and apparently it dates back 12,000 years. It’s nice to know that our ancient ancestors would recognize this food!

Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
