This rice was delicious! I used a mixture of white and wild as that is all that I had on hand - I cooked it for 20 minutes. I also added a bit of chopped red pepper for some colour. It was very easy to prepare and a huge hit at our thanksgiving dinner. I highly recommend this recipe! I also noted that it only took 30 minutes to reheat the entire product (after mixing in veggies and cheese).

  3. If when tender, any liquid remains, drain it.
  4. Cook the mushrooms, onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic in butter in a skillet until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes.
  5. Mix together the rice, vegetables, and cheese, and spread in a greased 2-quart casserole.
