The refrigerator light goes on...

Wild rice is great for you with 2 grams of fiber in a serving and it's easy to cook. It is more expensive and I keep it on hand for that special meal.


Wild Rice - Low Sodium Version

Servings: 2 | Serving size: about 1/2 cup

Cooking Time: 45 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied by 2.

This doesn't keep well.

Not on a low-sodium diet? Here's the standard Wild Rice.

1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cups wild rice
1/8 tsp salt

In a medium sauce pan, heat the water and salt. When the water boils, stir in the wild rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 40 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes before serving.
