Basic Wild Rice


Wild Rice

by Kate Heyhoe


Makes 4 cups cooked wild rice

The cooking time for wild rice varies depending on when the rice was harvested and the type of wild rice used (some are very black, others are more brown or tan). Look for wild rice in supermarkets or health food stores.

  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

1. Rinse and drain the wild rice.

2. Bring the wild rice, water, and salt to a boil in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Reduce the heat, cover loosely, and cook 45 to 60 minutes, until the rice has "butterflied" or puffed open. Taste a few grains. The wild rice should be tender, a bit chewy, but not mushy. (If the rice is too firm, add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup water and continue to cook until tender. Or, if necessary, drain away any excess water.) Remove the pot from the heat. Fluff the rice with a fork, cover tightly, and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
