Sauté the vegetables.
In a heavy-bottomed pot, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Then add the minced shallots, chopped celery, and diced carrot. Sauté until the shallots become translucent, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the wild rice.
Now add the wild rice blend and stir until the grains are well coated, about 3 minutes.
Add cranberries and seasonings.
Then stir in the dried cranberries, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Stir for 1 minute.
Stir in broth and simmer.
Pour in the chicken broth and bring the rice to a boil. Then drop the heat to medium-low and let the rice simmer (covered) for about 40-45 minutes.
Add pecans and parsley.
Once the liquids have been absorbed and the rice is tender, stir in the chopped toasted pecans and garnish with freshly chopped parsley (optional).
