Healthy Wild Rice Stuffing With Apples, Sage, and Goji Berries
This recipe made its first appearance alongside our roasted turkey at Christmas dinner after my husband and I both decided we didn’t like the traditional bread stuffing we had made at Thanksgiving. Any whole grain will work, but I like the flavor and nuttiness of long-grain wild rice.
Interestingly, wild rice is not actually rice at all, but a species of grass grown near fresh water that produces a seed that is cooked like rice. Wild rice has about 30 times more antioxidant activity than white rice, and a lot more fiber, too.
