From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s casserole gets its satisfying flavor and texture from a hearty medley of red, brown, and wild rices and the savory power of both fresh cremini and dried porcini mushrooms. After rehydrating the porcini, we’re mixing the mushrooms and flavorful liquid into the filling alongside carrots, kale, and turnip. Smooth, tangy sour cream pulls the rice and vegetables together, while a pair of eggs adds another layer of richness to the baked dish. (Chefs, you may receive green curly, dark green lacinato, or red kale.)
