 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    portabella mushrooms -- or more
                         or 6 large white mushrooms -- cleaned and stemmed
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
    3                    shallots -- minced
    2 3/4  cups          reduced-sodium chicken broth
                         or beef broth
    1      cup           wild rice
      1/2  teaspoon      dried thyme
                         or rosemary leaves -- crumbled
      1/2  teaspoon      freshly ground pepper
    1                    bay leaf
 
 Wild rice takes longer to cook than true rice. This dish can be baked ahead
 and reheated at serving time.
 
 1. Turn on the broiler; line a baking sheet with foil. Place the mushrooms,
 stem side down, on the baking sheet. Broil until lightly browned, about 4
 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly, then dice; transfer to a plate.
 
 2. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, heat
 the oil. Saute the shallots until softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the
 broth, the mushrooms with any juices, rice, thyme, pepper and bay leaf.
 Transfer to a 1-quart casserole. Cover and bake until the liquid is
 absorbed and the rice is tender but still slightly chewy, about 1 hour or
 more. Remove, discard the bay leaf and serve.
