Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Use brown rice in place of white rice in most recipes for added nutrition.
  • Mix brown and white rice by cooking the brown rice for 20 minutes, then adding white rice and more water for another 20 minutes.
  • Cook extra wild rice to add to soups and casseroles. Cooked wild rice freezes well.
  • Hand-parched wild rice cooks in less time – about 15-20 minutes
  • A rice cooker is inexpensive and gives good results for all types of rice.
