Orange Wild Rice
1 1/2 cups wild rice
3 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons grated orange zest or 1 Tb dried orange peel
2 Tb fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tb unsalted butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
Rinse the wild rice in a strainer under cold running water.
In a slow cooker, combine the rice, broth, orange zest and juice, salt, and butter.

Stir in the pecans, scallions, and parsley and serve.
