Soak mushrooms in 1 cup (250 mL) boiling water for 30 minutes. Strain through sieve; reserve 1/2 cup (125 mL) soaking liquid for gravy. Chop mushrooms.

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry garlic, leek, carrots, thyme and mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until leeks are softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in basmati and wild rice, salt and pepper. Add stock and water, scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 40 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and keep warm for up to 30 minutes.) Stir in parsley and red pepper.
