Ingredients

    6 cups (1.5 L) water

    2/3 cup (150 mL) brown rice

    2/3 cup (150 mL) wild rice

    2/3 cup (150 mL) green lentils

    1 tsp (5 mL) salt

    1/4 cup (60 mL) melted butter or canola oil

    1 large onion, finely chopped

    5 stalks celery, diced (include any leaves)

    2 tart apples, diced

    1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) dried sage

    1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme

    1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground black pepper

    1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped dried apricots

    1/2 cup (125 mL) dried cranberries

    1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped pecans, toasted

    1 cup (250 mL) chicken, turkey, or vegetable stock (optional)


Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil; add the rice, lentils and salt and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 45-50 minutes, until the rice and lentils are tender.
  2. In large skillet, heat the butter or canola oil and sauté the onion and celery for 4-5 minutes, until softened. Add the apples and cook for a few more minutes, until they begin to soften. Stir in the sage, thyme, pepper and cook for a few more minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with rice, dried apricots, cranberries, and pecans.
  3. Use the stuffing to stuff your turkey before you roast it. If not cooking inside turkey, transfer to a buttered baking dish, drizzle with stock, cover, and bake in a preheated 375 ̊F (190 ̊C) oven for 30 minutes; uncover and bake for another 15 minutes until golden and crisp on top.
