How To Cook Wild Rice

Wild Rice was a staple diet for many Native Americans due to its growth along the shallow shores of the Great Lakes that the United States and Canada share today. While it has long since been domesticated, the name stuck and there are no signs of it changing anytime soon. Wild rice differs from its cousin white rice due to its more vegetal taste, which is why it is often prepared with vegetables. While it stands alone as a meal in and of itself, it also serves as a great side to steak, chicken or whatever else you have one hand. Learn to cook online with Chef Cesar as he provides you with a simple homemade wild rice recipe.

  1. well I don’t know what magic technique you have, to make this wild rice recipe at 30 35 minutes, as I followed the recipe to the tee and what I got is soup. so now I’m continue to cook another 40 minutes to see if that will fully cook it to the right consistency that you would expect rice to be. Hope I didn’t waste my money and time with this recipe.
