Asian Wild Rice Casserole

 Asian Wild Rice Casserole
Here's a fun way to jazz up wild rice. Soy sauce and chicken bouillon add plenty of flavor, while celery, mushrooms and water chestnuts help dress it up. "My husband and two adult children love this delicious side dish," comments Joyce Bodle, Enumclaw, Washington. "It's convenient, too, because you can make it a day ahead."
