Wild Rice - Organic
Manufacturer: Product of the USA
Organic wild rice is called rice, and cooks much like rice, but is not actually rice at all!
It is actually a species of grass that has a strong, unique, but delicious nutty flavour.
Wild rice's chewy texture and pleasing appearance makes a great addition to rice pilafs or simply cooked in combination with plain brown or white rice.

Wild rice is the seed of an aquatic grass that grows wild in the lakes and streams of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and nearby areas of Canada. It is also cultivated in paddies in Central California, which is where most commercially available wild rice in most of the U.S. comes from. It has a wonderfully deep nutty flavor, tastes great plain, topped with butter and salt, or in salads, casseroles, or soups. Best of all, it is super easy to cook.
How to Use:
To prepare, rinse wild rice before bringing to boil in 4 cups of water. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until the tender and the outer husks pop open. Wild Rice can be served hot as a side dish with curries and hotpots, used to make savoury pilaffs and luscious soups, or as a tasty stuffing for vegetables or poultry. It goes very well with mushrooms and fresh herbs.
Cold wild rice is delicious in salads and rice paper wraps. Or simmer wild rice with water or nut mylk (1:5), maple syrup and sweet spices to make delicious, creamy grain-free pudding. Wild rice can be ground and used with flour in baked goods.
Whole pre-cooked wild rice is also wonderful in muffin and bread recipes – try combining with carrot or tangy dried fruits, or add to savoury loaves including caraway seeds, chives and cheese.
