This Canadian Wild Rice Casserole is an excellent recipe to have on hand after the holiday season. It utilizes leftover turkey meat and has the addition of some yellow peppers and wild rice. 

Canadian Wild Rice and Turkey Casserole

While on business trip out east last month, we scouted out some of the best wild rice Canada has to offer. He ended up coming back home with a huge bag from one of the local farmers out there.

We ended up using just 1/2 cup for this recipe and then mixed it with another 1/2 cup of a wild rice mix blend that we had bought prior.

Today most people are eating wild rice from a box and in most cases it’s been processed and is definitely not the same stuff that this we used in this recipe.

Since wild rice naturally grows in the freshwater lakes of North America, it’s best eaten as natural as possible since it contains many nutrients that processed wild rice would not.

So we encourage you to get your hand on the real stuff... and avoid that processed box variety, trust is it’s worth it. 

The Ojibwa people along with many wild animals in North America, consider this grain to be sacred. And we agree, and want to send a BIG miigwech = “thank you” to our First Nations peoples for the inspiration us to recreate this amazing and healthy recipe.

This recipe can be prepared with chicken, hamburger or made vegetarian, all three ways are amazing.

I like to use my dutch oven for this recipe, if you do not have a dutch oven then feel free to use a sauteing pan and then a casserole dish once it ready to go into the oven.  

Some people like to add grated cheese over top before baking, i don’t. And that is because i prefer the earthy taste of the dish, i encourage you to try it in its traditional form = delicious.

To make the Wild Rice Casserole: Follow either the Quick rinse method or the soaking overnight method “This recipe is preferred to the more traditional overnight soaking. The “quick-soak” method permits you to soak the rice in the afternoon and serve it piping hot at the dinner table.” ~ Thomas A. Logan
