Apple Walnut Rice Stuffing (Vegan)
65 mins (prep 20, cooking 45)
13 ingredients
4 servings
This is a recipe from a 1987 issue of Better Homes & Gardens, from a Tyson chicken ad. It's meant to be stuffing for cornish game hens but because I don't eat meat and poultry, this serves as a nice vegetarian side dish (non-vegans can use butter for a richer flavor.) This would be great for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any other feast. I don't normally keep storebought wild rice on hand so I used 1/3 cup each brown rice, black rice, and long-grain yellow rice. The ingredients were listed in the ad but no actual instructions my instructions pretty much work, I had to add the extra 2 TB oil for cooking the onion; it wasn't originally listed. I chose those two oils based on what was on hand and what I thought would have the most interesting flavors.
