Wild Rice with Chanterelles and Chorizo

Wild rice spinach chorizo 0288

In this recipe, the Chorizo provides a little heat (depending on what kind you choose to use) and the tomatoes a hint of sweetness. The Parmesan cheese allows the molded shape to stay together on the plate. If you can’t find fresh chanterelles, use a mix of any other fresh mushroom you like. A delicious, quick and easy dish! May also be served as an accompanying dish for very hungry guests, goes well with baked, fresh salmon.
