    I made this recipe with leftover turkey. I did not soak the wild rice. The package instructions did not mention soaking or rinsing the rice before cooking. Generally I would use about 2.5 cups of liquid to 1 cup of wild rice. The total for this recipe is 4.5 cups of liquid. I left out a 1/2 cup of broth at the end as I felt the rice had plenty of liquid to cook through. I did used left over turkey breast (chopped), which absorbed a lot of the broth and cream. I also made sure to cook the onions and mushrooms, over medium high heat, until all the liquid evaporated. The recipe does not note this step, but mushrooms can be very watery. I baked my casserole in a deep 9X13 buttered casserole and it turned out great!
