Chop the nuts coarsely. 2. Cover the cried mushrooms with hot water and let soak 30 minutes, until soft. Drain. Discard tough stems and chop the mushrooms coarsely. 3. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Spread brown rice in the skillet and toast 5 to 10 minutes, or until the grains are a light golden color. Stir occasionally. Remove from the pan. 4. In a heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Remove the sausage from the casings and put into the pan. Break up with a spatula and cook until most of the pink is gone. Then add the leek and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, thyme and rosemary; cook 3 minutes. 6. Remove from the heat and stir in the hazelnuts. Let stand, covered, 5 ,minutes. >From "Pilaf, Risotto, and Other Ways with Rice" by Sada Fretz.
