Cook's Country Wild Rice Dressing - Instructions
Yes, it's unconventional, but this wild rice dressing is rich, nutty, buttery, savory
and wholly delicious, fit for any Thanksgiving table. Depending on the brand, wild
rice absorbs varying quantities of liquid. If you have less than 1-1/2 cups of
leftover cooking liquid, make up the difference with additional low-sodium chicken
broth. We also provide two variations of the basic recipe. Serves 10 to 12
1. Cook wild rice: Bring broth, water, and bay leaf to boil in medium saucepan
over medium-high heat. Add wild rice, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until
rice is tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Strain contents of pan through fine-mesh strainer
into large liquid measuring cup. Transfer wild rice to medium bowl; discard bay leaf.
Reserve 1-1/2 cups cooking liquid.
