How "wild" is your wild rice?


Wild Rice is a unique North American grain. Technically not a rice at all, but a wild grass, the black edible kernel wild rice (Zizania aquatica) is North America's original grain crop. Canadian Lake Wild Rice is different than most other so-called "wild" rice (often referred to as "paddy" rice), which is actually produced commercially using conventional cultivation techniques.   

Wild Rice is a very nutritious grain, higher in protein and fiber than most other rices and is an excellent source of B vitamins. While it is seemingly more expensive than other rices, wild rice is actually an outstanding value, since it quadruples in volume when cooked. 

Wild Rice has a pleasantly chewy texture and a rich, but mild nutty flavor. It's often served with game, pork or poultry. Wild Rice is frequently paired with nuts, wild mushrooms and dried fruit and is outstanding when used in soups or pilafs.

Wild and "Tame" Rice with Chestnuts
Here's a recipe that is not only great for the holidays, but is just as pleasing and satisfying at any time of the year. It's inspired by a traditional Japanese rice dish, Kuri Gohan (literally, rice with chestnuts), but with the addition of North American wild rice. The nutty flavor and chewy texture of wild rice really adds a new dimension to the dish. While it makes a wonderful side dish with just about any meal, it would also work very well as a stuffing for turkey or a roasting chicken.

If you're entertaining a crowd, just double the recipe up and don't worry about leftovers - this delicious rice dish re-heats exceptionally well.
