  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2      cups          vegetable broth
     1/2  cup           brown rice -- uncooked
     1/2  cup           wild rice -- uncooked
   2      tablespoons   cooking wine
   3      medium        onions, sliced into thin wedges
   2      teaspoons     brown sugar
   1      cup           dried cranberries
     1/2  teaspoon      finely grated orange zest


The sweet-tartness of dried cranberries really shines through in this dish.

Combine broth and brown and wild rice in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a
boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until
rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat cooking wine in medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Add
onions and brown sugar.  Cook until liquid is absorbed and onions are soft
and translucent, about 6 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.  Slowly cook onions,
stirring often, until they are a caramel color, about 25 minutes.

Stir in cranberries.  Cover and cook over low heat until cranberries swell,
about 10 minutes.  Transfer rice to a large serving bowl.  Gently fold
cranberry mixture and orange zest into cooked rice.
