We have found more complicated recipes for a wild rice casserole than this, but we have never
found one that brings us more rave reviews. We try to make enough to ensure we have leftovers for
Cream of Wild Rice Soup, also found in the Blueberries & Polar Bears cookbook.

INGREDIENTS (wild rice casserole) :

1 cup                          uncooked whole kernel wild rice                                           250 mL
3 cups                         beef broth                                                                             750 mL
1/4 tsp.                        thyme                                                                                       1 mL
1/4 tsp.                        basil                                                                                          1 mL
1/2 cup                        butter or margarine                                                              125 mL
1/3 cup                        finely chopped onions                                                            75 mL
1/2 lb.                          fresh mushroom, sliced or 10 oz. (284 mL) can                     250 g
1/2 cup                        evaporated milk or light cream                                             125 mL

INSTRUCTIONS (wild rice casserole ) :

1. Rinse wild rice with cold water and place in a large pot with the beef broth, thyme and basil.
Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for one hour, or until tender. Remove from the heat and let sit for
30 minutes to absorb the remaining liquid.
2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the onions, and sauté until translucent. Add the
mushrooms and brown lightly.
3. Combine the rice, mushroom, onion mixture and evaporated milk. Place in a greased 1 1/2-quart
(1.5 L) casserole dish.
4. Bake in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 30 minutes, until heated through.

TIME-SAVING TIP

You can make this a day or two ahead and refrigerate it. Just increase the oven time by 15 minutes.
It even freezes well, so double the recipe and freeze a batch for another day.

COOKING TIP

Cooking time for wild rice varies according to how the rice has been parched (dried).
