Despite it's name Wild rice is not actually a rice, but an aquatic grass, native to North America. It looks and cooks like other types of rice but has an earthy, nutty and toasty flavor making it a great addition to salads, soups and casseroles. Naturally gluten-free, it is high in protein, fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, Vitamin B6 and antioxidants. With a longer cooking time than standard white or brown rice, wild rice can be soaked before cooking to help cut down the cooking time.
TO COOK: If not soaked, rinse thoroughly. Add 1 cup of rice to 3 cups of water or stock, bring to the boil and simmer for around 45 minutes. Drain excess liquid and serve.
