Thanks, CWS! DH is now a confirmed fan of wild rice.

Your previous link, that's the Native American wild harvested, right?

Thanks, PF! I usually only eat white meat, it's a great way to hide the dark meat from myself. And I don't tell me.

That sounds great CWS! I don't have smoked turkey, but I have tons of leftover turkey to use up. I've also got about a cup of Lundgren's wild rice and brown rices. I also have a can of black beans I didn't know what to do with. Everything but thyme, probably some Italian seasoning or poultry seasoning both of which I think have some thyme in them.

In that case, I wouldn't boil, just simmer. Keep tasting.

The smoked turkey put this over the top!

Yup--but why did it take him so LONG? Oh, the decade that the wild rice aged at the back of the cupboard...like wine?

If you don't have thyme, basil works.

It was Dawglover who came up with this recipe--not me. And Lindgren's blend is cultivated--it doesn't have the smokey flavor that hand-parched natural wild rice has.I am just the person who grew up eating wild rice instead of potatoes!
