Time 1h15m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 cup wild rice blend (usually a combination of wild rice, black rice, brown rice and white rice)
1 3/4 cups vegetable broth, chicken broth or water
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 medium yellow or white onion, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as shiitakes, button and cremini (baby bella), trimmed and sliced
Kosher salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves, plus a sprig for garnish


  • Combine the rice and broth in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for 45 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the rice steam for another 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  • While the rice cools, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once it shimmers, add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is translucent, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are browned and soft and the liquid they release has evaporated, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt.
  • Gently mix the mushrooms and chopped rosemary into the cooled rice. Add salt to taste. Just before serving, garnish the rice with a drizzle of good olive oil and a sprig of fresh rosemary.


Wild Rice with Wild Mushrooms image

One surprise to Europeans who settled the plains was the abundance of wild mushrooms, including morels, chanterelles, and other varieties familiar from home. Free for the picking, the mushrooms were hung on strings and dried, providing a winter's worth of eating. Wild rice (actually a grass seed) is a New World native that combines well with the earthy mushrooms the French cèpes.

Wild Rice With Mushrooms image

In Wisconsin, wild rice is truly wild, not cultivated as in other states, the tassels rising and swaying over rivers, lakes and floodplains come late August and September. Called manoomin by the local Chippewa, it is a protected crop that can be harvested only by state residents holding a valid license. And only by hand, as the Chippewa have always done, using wooden flails gently (the grains should fall from the stalk without great effort) from canoes propelled by paddles or push poles. Shellie Holmes of Rhinelander, Wis., who shares her recipe here, likes to cook wild rice just until it pops open. This is a break with her family's tradition, which favored a chewier texture and did not allow popping. "Do not mix with other rice," she urged, lest you lose the flavor of the wild.

Time 50m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 6

8 ounces long-grain Wisconsin wild rice
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 pound cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup dry sherry, such as Dry Sack (do not use cream sherry)


  • Bring 5 cups water to a boil. Stir in rice, then reduce heat so liquid is just simmering. Cover and cook until grains just begin to pop, about 40 minutes. Drain excess liquid from rice and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they have released their liquid and are golden brown, about 8 minutes; remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining butter and mushrooms.
  • Return all the mushrooms to the skillet and season with the salt and pepper, to taste. Very carefully add sherry to deglaze the pan, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated but mushrooms are still moist.
  • Mix mushrooms into prepared rice and season again with salt and pepper.

Wild Rice and Mushroom Casserole image

This hearty mix of wild rice, creamy white beans and aromatic vegetables (spinach, leeks, fennel and mushrooms) makes a satisfying meatless main course or a very substantial side dish for Thanksgiving - and beyond. If you want to go all out, use some exotic mushrooms such as chanterelles, maitake (hen of the woods) or black trumpet, but a basic combination of cremini and shiitake mushrooms also works perfectly.

Time 1h45m

Yield 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 20

2 1/4 cups vegetable, mushroom or chicken broth or stock
Fine sea salt
1 1/4 cups wild rice, rinsed
10 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, more as needed
1 pound sliced mushrooms, preferably a mix of different kinds
3 leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
2 fennel bulbs, trimmed and chopped
5 ounces baby spinach (about 4 cups)
7 fat garlic cloves (4 chopped, 3 finely grated or crushed into a paste)
1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 (14-ounce) cans white beans (7 cups)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro (or basil)
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 1/2 cups panko or coarse bread crumbs
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Flaky sea salt, for garnish


  • Taste broth; if bland, season to taste with salt. In a medium pot, bring broth to a boil over high heat. Stir in rice, lower heat, cover and simmer until just tender, about 40 minutes or according to package directions. Fluff rice with a fork, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, sauté vegetables: In a large, heavy skillet, heat 3 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add half the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until brown and crispy, about 8 minutes. Adjust heat as needed to prevent burning. Transfer cooked mushrooms to a plate and sprinkle lightly with salt. Repeat with remaining mushrooms and another tablespoon oil, adding more oil to the skillet if it looks dry.
  • In the empty skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Stir in leeks, fennel and 1 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until soft but not browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in spinach, chopped garlic, tomato paste and red pepper flakes, and cook until garlic starts turning golden, another 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees, and oil a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish.
  • In a blender, purée 2 cans beans with their liquid, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 grated garlic clove, and salt to taste. (If your beans are unsalted, they might need more than you'd think.)
  • Stir bean purée, remaining whole beans (drained), mushrooms, cilantro, parsley and cooked wild rice into skillet with vegetables. Taste and add more salt or lemon as needed; it should be well seasoned. Scrape into prepared baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, rosemary, lemon zest, remaining 2 grated garlic cloves and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Stir in 1/4 cup olive oil and Parmesan, if using.
  • Sprinkle evenly on top of casserole and bake until golden, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving, topped with flaky sea salt.
