    If you had a pound of beautiful, fresh wild rice from Minnesota, how would you cook it?

    I was delighted to find it in my mailbox this evening, a gift from a friend who lives there. It doesn't grow here in the South, so it's a rare treat for me, and I'm seeking experienced suggestions.

    I love wild rice and veggie salad! I also add it to my regular brown rice, it gives it a nice crunch. Love wild rice, but they can be expensive here, and can't always find.

      I have the same problem. When I can get it in the local stores, it's not of the best quality. My friend up north was generous to send it. Thanks for your response.

    One of my favorite ways to fix any rice is to first fry the rice in olive oil in a skillet.  This breaks opens the pods, then add chicken stock and cook on medium low to medium, stirring occassionally.  You will have to add more stock as the liquid boils away.  This usually takes about half an hour for finish product!

      I cook brown rice in an open pot like that, just as you would risotto, usually with some sauteed onion or other aromatic. I've never tried it with wild rice (which is a grass, not a rice), but it should work. Thanks for the comment.

      I have never tried it this way either. Sounds interesting.... Will give it a try.

      Barely cover the pan with olive oil....
