Rice pilafs are a great side dish during the colder months. We love this recipe for Slow Cooker Wild Rice Pilaf because of the contrasting textures of chewy wild rice and soft and meaty mushrooms. You can prepare this hearty side dish a few days ahead of time, which makes it a great dish for potlucks or dinner parties!
