I followed this recipe almost exactly (except I used 1 cup of wild rice instead of the 1/2 cup listed. I thought that was a lot of liquid for the amount of rice they gave). My husband and I really liked this recipe. In fact we had the leftovers for breakfast. It has a great taste. The sliced almonds on top were good. The only drawback is that it's not "as pretty" as some dishes which I think is because of the mushrooms. I would make this recipe again.
