Creamy and Comforting Mushroom Wild Rice Recipe | Real Food RN

We live in Minnesota, and around here wild rice is a pretty big deal. I grew up eating it and have learned to love its chewy goodness even more over the years! Combine it with a wonderful umami flavor from mushrooms and the creamy tartness of a good creme kefir, and you have something simply magical. This dish is not only delicious, but it's also super easy to throw together as a weeknight meal. We have it in our regular weekly rotation, even my kids love it! I absolutely crave this Creamy and Comforting Mushroom Wild Rice Recipe!
