  1. Bring rice and 1 1/2 cups water to boil in a pot. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes.
  2. Place broccoli in a pot with enough water to cover, and boil 5 minutes, or until slightly tender. Remove from heat, and drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the mushrooms and onion until tender. Mix in cooked rice, cooked broccoli, stuffing mix, broth, and almonds. Transfer to the prepared baking dish (or use to stuff turkey just before roasting).
  5. Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

I make this awesome stuffing every year for Thanksgiving. However, the last few years, I've used 2 packets of Uncle Ben's microwave wild rice instead of the uncooked wild rice. It tastes exactly the same and shaves 45 minutes off the cooking time!

This was just ok. It actually sounded better than it was. Bland would be a good description.

I brought this stuffing along with a roast turkey to a potluck tonight and got many compliments on it. Every lady there asked me for the recipe, and several of the men too! Some commented that they didn't really like stuffing, but this stuffing was delicious! This recipe is a keeper! It goes together very easily too. Thanks! P.S. The recipe as posted doesn't delineate a quanitity or preparation on the almonds. I used a small bag of slivered ones, and it seemed to be the right amount.

I tried another mushroom stuffing and gave it five stars...then I tried this one...it is fantastic!...I'd give it six stars if I could!!!

I didn't have broccoli and used more mushrooms instead. I used ~twice the broth then stated and it was good. Definitely a keeper. Will add other veggies like carrots or celery next time. YUM!

A new family favorite stuffing! My grandparents loved it, and I think we will be making this for now on instead of the traditional stuffing. I really enjoyed the wild rice, broccoli, and mushrooms, as it enhanced the stuffing. I used 1 1/2 cans of chicken broth or so. I added about 1/4 cup of thinly sliced celery. I sprinkled almonds on top. I used only 1/4 cup ( 4 Tb) of margarine. Very tasty and very filling!

This stuffing is a new holiday tradition in our home! Being vegetarian, I substituted the chicken broth for a high sodium vegetable broth and sprinkled some sea salt on the top before baking. It was amazing!! I blanched the broccoli too, which I think helped the leftovers remaining quite tender, not mushy. Enjoy this awesome stuffing!! :D

This recipe was AWESOME! This is the ONLY stuffing I ever kept for leftovers... I think those who ended up with soggy stuffing probably only used a 6 oz box of stuffing, not 16 oz, which is what I almost did. Thanks for the great addition to our holidays!
