Side Dish for Roast Duck
December 16, 2003 1:39 PM Subscribe
I'm cooking roast duck for my family on Christmas (actually Dysfunctional Family Christmas on the 21st.) I like to serve a wild rice/kashi mixture on the side. However, every time I make the dish it lacks flavor
. It has a nice bite to it, what with the wild rice and other grains, but it's missing something. I usually toss some garlic cloves in, I've used broth instead of water, etc. Still, it comes out bland. How can I zip it up?

How does Uncle Ben get that flavor into his Long Grain and Wild Rice mixture? MSG and other fun stuff, I'm sure, but there must be a slightly healthier combination of herbs and spices I can use.
I suppose I could add bacon drippings. They make everything taste good.
