  • 3/4 cup uncooked wild rice

  • 2 1/2 cups water

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 cup apple, chopped (including peel)

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

  • 2 cups celery, diced

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/4 cups slivered almonds, toasted

  • Cooking spray


  • Place wild rice in a strainer, and rinse until the water runs clear.

  • Bring the wild rice and water to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes or until the water is absorbed, taking care to stir occasionally to prevent burning.

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, mushroom, apple, cranberries, and celery. Saut� until tender. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Mix well, and continue cooking for about 10 minutes.

  • Add the rice, vegetable mixture, and chicken broth to a large bowl, and mix well. Use the rice to stuff a turkey, or transfer the rice to a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake the rice until the chicken broth has been absorbed.

  • Garnish with toasted almonds and serve immediately.
