My family's favorite rice dish is this tempting medley of white, brown and wild rice. I prepare it as a side dish or a stuffing. In fall I add chopped dried apricots, and for the holidays I mix in dried cranberries. My guests always ask for seconds. -Ricki Bingham, Ogden, Utah

"This is now my favorite side dish.. I especially like to have it on the side of a fish main course. This is already the second or third time that I've made it and plan on making it plenty more times."

"Love, Love, Love this recipe. The Wild Rice and Mushrooms really make it. Everyone fights over the leftovers too. Highly recommend."

"Instead of the three different kinds of rices called for, I used Royal Blend, which is wild, brown and Basmati. It worked well. I liked this dish but my husband was just okay with it. Tasteful and healthy."

"Great!! I added more veggies and apricots than called for and that served as a starch-veggie side dish"
