Wild Rice is an aquatic grass that grows predominately in the Great Lakes region.  High in protein, low in fat, wild rice is a tasty alternative to pasta and potatoes as side dish options.  Wild rice is also known as Zizania palustris, manoomin, good berry, manomio, folle avoine, squaw rice, water oats, blackbird oats, marsh oats and Indian rice.

  • Serve it straight. Something different for chefs to consider.
  • Cook a five-pound bag of Premium wild rice (or any blend). After it is cooked, lay it out on a cookie sheet and place it in the freezer. After it is IQF'd (Individually Quick Frozen), place it in a bag or container in the freezer and use it in any amount needed. Great to re-heat in the microwave or on the stovetop for side dishes or to add to soups, etc.
  • Blend with brown rice before cooking or white rice after cooking. Gives chefs creative control.
  • We have many recipes available from main dishes to desserts!

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Add 1 cup rice and 2½ cups of rapidly boiling water or stock. Return to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45-50 minutes. Fluff with fork before serving. 

One cup dry yields 4-4½ cups cooked.
