With its nutty texture and visual appeal, you’ll turn to this hearty side whenever a rice dish is in order. I’ve served this for more than 30 years and, over time, have learned to make enough for leftovers to be sent home with family members.—Virginia Peter, Winter, Wisconsin

"This is a very nice recipe. I used canned mushrooms as I did not have fresh mushrooms on hand. Also I used a brown and wild rice mix since I was out of plain wild rice."
