Recipe by Marlena
I created this a few years ago at Thanksgiving as substitute for stuffing for the vegetarians. The whole family has adopted it, as we do not cook a whole turkey anymore, just a turkey breast. I suppose it probably could be used to stuff a turkey. It is a bit of trouble to cook the two rices and the vegetable mixture in separate pans, but I find that the taste and texture turns out much better than when I've tried to cook them together.

This recipe was amazing ! I used 3/4 cup wild rice and cooked it in 1 3/4 cups water and 1/4 cup chicken broth. I used long grain brown rice and brought it to a boil then went to 4/10 heat for 10 minutes then brought it to low. I drained both dices and mixed them and put them back in a pot to steam while I sautéd the vegetables. Then I mixed both together , scrape the hard rice stuck to the edges to give it a deliscious crunch!
