Serves:
If you’re making your stuffing in the oven alongside your turkey, baste with some turkey drippings every 15 minutes to add a big burst of flavour.
  1. Prepare rice according to package instructions. Set aside. This step can be done up to 2 days in advance.
  2. Toast slivered almonds in a fry pan over low heat until browned. Cool.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a fry pan over medium heat. Add onion, celery, carrots, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for about 4 minutes. Add garlic.
  5. Cook until softened and translucent, an additional 2-4 minutes. Let cool.
  6. Roughly combine wild rice, basmati rice, almonds, cherries and onion-celery mixture.
  7. Line an oven-proof casserole with parchment paper. Fill with stuffing. Bake for 35 minutes or until lightly browned and toasted.
  8. If using your stuffing for turkey, loosely stuff your turkey with mixture and roast according to turkey instructions.
