Wild Rice with Rosemary and Cashew Stuffing

Recipe by  

"Essentially, this is a rice pilaf that I have modified ever-so-slightly to be used as a stuffing for a small roasting chicken. The type of nuts, mushroom, and herbs can be varied in any number of ways."

I love this but it never cooks all the way. I found that the only way for it to be completely done is when you add the rice, follow the timing on the back of the rice package instead. Great taste! I've made it as a side and as a duck stuffing. (even in the duck it was undercooked)

Even though I thought this would be an absolutely fabulous recipe, I was disappointed. I found that the salt in the cashews didn't make up for the lack of salt in the recipe. Some people liked it at our Christmas table and some not. I would not make the recipe the same way again next time. By the way, I made it as a side dish, not as a stuffing.

Instead of using it as a stuffing, I just made it as a side with chicken. Delicious. Will make again and again. Thanks

EXCELLENT!! 6 STARS!! I made a similar stuffing years ago for Thanksgiving dinner and it became an instant favorite. One very nice way to modify this is to add a handful of craisins and substitute the cashews for chopped pecans. I'm big fan of "sneaking" additional nutritional points into foods, so add some finely chopped spinach to the mix and no one will know!

Great side dish.

Really, really good and healthy, too. We loved this especially because we love cashews. I didn't use rosemary (didn't have any) so I subbed thyme. The kids were initially skeptical of the wild rice, but ended up eating all of it. Will use as a regular side dish at our house.

This recipe is delicious and makes the house smell great! It is a great way to get your kids who love rice to get some protien with it.

This was a big hit.... Delicious! I made it as a side dish in place of traditional stuffing with a turkey dinner.
