Nif's Wild Rice Casserole

Total Time
1hr 20mins
Prep 20 mins
Cook 1 hr

An excellent dish that is always a hit during family gatherings, even with the vegetarians! You can also cut the amount of cheese and it's a really healthy dish and vegan as well. Make the rice ahead of time. It can take a while for those little guys to cook and open. Enjoy!

It was my first time cooking wild rice. It's expensive but it's worth it :) I used one small onion. I thought I had a can of diced tomatoes, but didn't. So I used 2 tomatoes, diced and a little bit of tomato juice. That's a very yummy dish :) Thanks Nif. Made for PRMR :)

This was a very tasty rice casserolle. The mushrooms and onion were really nice with the wild rice. I used the cheese on top and thought that was very yummy, too. However sadly I couldnt taste the tomatoes that much. Next time I think Ill use more of those instead of the water.
Mine was ready after 30 minutes in the oven, but I guess that depends on your rice and the oven.
THANKS SO MUCH for sharing a keeper, Nif. Ill make this again.
