HOW TO MAKE TURKEY RICE CASSEROLE 

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

  • Hot water method: Start by washing your “WILD RICE mix” in a colander, and place into boiling water for 5 minutes, remove and set aside in the hot water for one hour (covered) this allows it to tenderize. 
  • Next cook the white rice & your “wild and white rice mixture” together in boiling water until nearly tender for another 20 minutes and set aside.
  • Now melt your butter in a large frying pan and then add your mushrooms and onions, yellow pepper and sauté until caramelized.
  • Next in a small bowl whisk your chicken broth and then slowly pour into your pan with the onions and mushrooms.
  • Stir in your shredded turkey, and rice. Season with (soya sauce) optional or salt and pepper.
  • Allow it to cool down on the stove top for 10 minutes, serve and enjoy!

This is a great recipes for using leftover Turkey meat!

For this recipe I used 1/2 cup of white rice and 1/2 cup of a wild rice mix blend.

Turkey Rice Casserole

The Ojibwa people along with many wild animals in North America, consider wild rice 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 for you today!

This recipe can also 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.

Some people like to add grated cheese over top and bake it once it has been prepared for 30 minutes in the oven.

I prefer it much more this way. And that is because I prefer the earthy taste of the dish.

So I encourage you to try it in its traditional form instead = it’s delicious as is.
