About Wild Rice Organic
Wild rice has a pleasing chew, something that gives soups and casseroles a wonderful texture. Though its earthy flavor is stronger than white and brown rice, it’s not overpowering.

How to use
Always rinse wild rice thoroughly in cold water before cooking it and know that 1 cup uncooked wild rice yields 3 to 4 cups cooked wild rice.
Make wild rice just as you prepare white or brown rice, but it will require a longer cooking time. The grains triple in size, so one cup of dried wild rice will yield at least three cups cooked. Serve it as a side dish or alongside grilled chicken or salmon. Rice pilaf is another popular preparation that works well with a blend of wild and white rices.
Wild rice is a popular base for stuffings in lieu of bread, adding a pleasing chewy texture. You can also pop on the stove like popcorn for a flavorful snack or stir it into a soup.
