The Best Ever Wild Rice Stuffing


 



The Best Ever Wild Rice Stuffing






The best wild rice stuffing ever is packed with fall flavors like herbs, dried cranberries and garlic. A delicious side for the holidays!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup wild rice mixture, rinsed
  • ½ cup of dried cranberries
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon of salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup diced sweet or white onion
  • 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh sage

Instructions

First, heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Sweat the onion and celery until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pot and set aside in a bowl.

Then, in the same pot, add the broth, rice and thyme. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to cook over low heat for 30 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 ° F.

Remove the thyme sprig, leaving the thyme leaves in the rice. Stir the onion and celery, cranberries, sage, salt and pepper into the cooked rice. Pour into an oiled 8x8 casserole dish.

Bake 15 minutes, covered with foil and 15 minutes, uncovered, until the top begins to brown. Sprinkle with additional thyme or parsley to color before serving. Happy Cooking Time.
