Wild rice origniates from Asia and North America. Suprisingly, it isn't actually a rice - it’s the seed of an aquatic grass that looks and cooks like rice. This grass grows naturally along the shores of streams and lakes and in shallow freshwater marshes.
Wild rice is brown/black and has a nutty, smokey, chewy flavour. It is much higher in protein than regular rice and contains several important nutrients and an impressive number of antioxidants.
Cooking with Wild Rice
To make a lovely nutty, smoky wild rice salad, rinse 120g wild rice thoroughly, then bring 500ml chicken stock to the boil, add the rice and a couple of bay leaves. Cover and simmer for about 40 minutes, then drain and mix into a green salad. Wild rice pairs well with butter, lemon juice, pepper and chopped tarragon.
