Wild Rice Baked with Almonds & Mushrooms

Wild Rice Baked with Almonds & Mushrooms
The legendary flavor of wild rice is paired with the mild, nutty-flavored Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms. A real novelty to look at, they're delicious when sautéed and combined with rice. The "feathery" parts of the mushroom crisp up wonderfully.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 pound fresh Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms, sliced thinly
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon minced green bell pepper
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup uncooked wild rice
3 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350 F. 

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, garlic, green pepper, almonds, and rice. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are soft.

Remove from heat and add the chicken stock, salt, and pepper.


Pour mixture into a large, shallow baking dish. Cover and bake for about 1 1/2 hours or until the rice is tender.
