  • Summary

    The technique: Who says stuffing has to be made with bread? Rice-based dressings are a good way to mix up the Thanksgiving lineup. Keep in mind that wild rice from different sources cooks at different rates. Check the package to get an idea of how long the wild rice should cook. The goal is tender rice that still retains its structure.The payoff: The nutty, hearty texture of wild rice is fantastic with the turkey and all the trimmings. Plus, it's an indigenous American ingredient. A mix of wild rice and white rice is amped up with Middle Eastern flavors in this satisfying stuffing.
