Every September Darrick and a friend went out and harvested the wild rice on our lake with a canoe and a long stick. It was hard work and a long day but we ended up with 20lbs of wild rice from our own land!
With all this wild rice we tried several recipes but this is our favorite.
1 cup Wild rice (rinsed well)
2 cups water
2 tsp chicken or beef broth
1 carrot (cut up)
1 celery (cut up)
1/2 onion (chopped)
Add all ingredients to a sauce pan (big enough for some expansion as the rice soaks up water) and bring to a boil. Cover and turn off heat. Let sit for 15-20 minutes (see note) until all the water is absorbed.
Note- Our rice doesn’t have the black hull, so it cooks much faster than store bought wild rice. This recipe makes about 4 servings.
Thank you for visiting us and we hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. If you like what you see, please follow us. If you have questions, or you tried the recipe please let us know what you thought.
