Prep Time: Prep Time: approx. 1/2 hr
Cook Time: approx. 1 hour for stuffing only; approx. 2-3 hours if prepared with poultry.
Serving Size: 4-6, depending on appetites!
  • 1/2 c Wild Rice, uncooked
  • 1 c steeped Hochija Fugue tea or 1 c tea-infused chicken broth
  • 1/4 c Raisins,
  • 1tb Vegetable Oil
  • dark or golden 5 Green Onions (scallions), chopped
  • 1/2 c Celery -or- Fennel Bulb, chopped

  • 10 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 c Cranberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 ts Orange Rind,
  • grated 1/2 t Dried Thyme
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
Step 1. Put the wild rice in a saucepan. Add the steeped tea (or tea-infused chicken broth) and raisins and cook over medium heat for 1 hour, or until the rice is tender. Reduce head to low, cover and simmer; or set rice aside in a bowl.

Step 2. Meanwhile, in a nonstick 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Saute the onions, celery (or fennel bulb), and carrots in the oil until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove carrot mixture, setting aside in bowl.

Step 3. In same skillet in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, cook mushrooms until golden brown and all liquid evaporates. Stir in the cranberries, orange rind, thyme, chopped parsley; add rice and carrot mixtures from steps 1 and 2.

Use to stuff turkey, cornish hens, or chicken. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 1 hour, or until the poultry is done. (Or, spoon stuffing into serving bowl; keep warm.)
