We are glad to tell you that wild rice offers about fifty percent more fiber and protein than other types of this grain. Such nutrient wealth puts wild rice in the same stage as quinoa. There is only one unpleasant quality wild rice can boast of - it's more expensive than many other whole grains. So it can take more time for preparation. Another side is its price, that doesn't make you happy. Anyway, it can be explained by the harvesting condition! 

To make your meal more delicious, try to combine your dish with:

  • Chives, garlic, or shallot
  • Chickpeas or other beans
  • Fresh apple, dried cranberries, or raisins
  • Arugula, fennel seeds, kale, parsley, sage, spinach, or thyme
  • Almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pepitas, or any other nuts
  • Black pepper, cinnamon, Dijon mustard, ginger, lemon or orange juice/zest, or vinegar 
  • Feta, goat cheese
  • Asparagus, beets, bell peppers, cabbage, carrots, celery, mushrooms, pumpkin, or squash

Essential ingredients

  • Wild rice

    225 g (1 cup)

  • Water

    1350 g (5 cup)

Ingredients to taste

Salt, Olive oil, Garlic, Onions

How to make

  • 1

    Bring a large pot of water to boil. Rinse the rice thoroughly in a fine mesh colander under running water.

  • 2

    Add the rinsed rice and continue cooking. Reduce heat to maintain an active simmer for 40 minutes to 55 minutes. It's cooked when the rice is pleasantly tender but offers light resistance to the bite.

  • 3

    Drain and transfer the rice to the pot (off the heat).

  • 4

    Stir in any seasonings you'd like. If you have the time, place a tea towel over the pot, cover, and let it rest for 15 minutes. This absorbs any excess moisture. Serve hot.

Weight Loss Tips

  • Kitchen scales are more precise than cups and spoons. Kitchen scales would be an excellent investment in your weight loss.

  • If something is marked as "healthy" or "fitness," it doesn't mean it is low in calories. Check the nutrition facts of foods you buy to ensure that you're getting a product that will help you stay healthy and lose weight.

  • To remove excess fat from a dish, take an ice cube and wrap it in a napkin. Run it over the product to absorb the grease.
