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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2012

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.
