You are either wild rice lover or hater, there’s little in-between. I grew up in Northern Minnesota, so obviously it is one of my favorites. That and venison and pasties and hot dish. You can take a girl from the Iron Range, but that iron ore sticks on you forever, don’t cha know.
Even if you’ve never tried Wild Rice, you are going to want to check these wild rice recipes out anyway. Wild rice is actually more of a grain than a traditional rice. Its hearty and slightly nutty and keeps its “bite” much better than white rice. Its got a pretty strong flavor, so I prefer it mixed in with other things – but there’s no substitute. Try and get wild grown rice from Minnesota, if you can. I am partial, but its actually the best.
