"Although it uses many of the same ingredients found in typical stuffings, my family enjoys this version because the wild rice provides a different texture," shares Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah.

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-1/2 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring broth and water to a boil. Add the wild rice, salt and thyme. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, saute the carrots, celery and onion in oil until crisp-tender. Add mushrooms; saute 5 minutes longer. Stir in vegetables and long grain rice to wild rice. Cover and cook for 30-35 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in parsley.
