Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf

“I created this a few years ago at Thanksgiving as substitute for stuffing for the vegetarians. The whole family has adopted it, as we do not cook a whole turkey anymore, just a turkey breast. I suppose it probably could be used to stuff a turkey. It is a bit of trouble to cook the two rices and the vegetable mixture in separate pans, but I find that the taste and texture turns out much better than when I've tried to cook them together.”
