Wild Rice Mix - Organic - Priced Per 100g

£0.75 GBP

How often do you cook wild rice? Maybe once a year to make a pilaf of some sort? Or perhaps as an addition to your Thanksgiving stuffing? Maybe you don’t cook it at all? But you should! This chewy, nutty-tasting grain definitely deserves a spot at the table year-round. It’s time to shake up your side dishes.

What Is Wild Rice?

Wild rice isn’t technically “rice,” but actually the seed of a species of aquatic grass that grows primarily in the Great Lakes region of North America. It was once a dietary staple of the Native Americans living in this region, and these days, most of the wild rice available in the supermarket is specially cultivated in Minnesota and California.

Wild rice is gluten-free, low in fat, and high in both lysine (an amino acid) and fiber. It is also quite high in protein, coming in behind oats and in front of quinoa in terms of protein content. It has a nutty, earthy flavor and a distinctly chewy texture. It can be eaten on its own, but its flavor can be fairly intense (and the cost sometimes prohibitive). More often, wild rice is used in dishes alongside other ingredients — it gets cooked in pilafs with other grains; sprinkled over salads; or added to soups, casseroles, and stuffings.
