Ingredients for 4

Show Original

1 1/3 cup Wild rice, dry (rinsed well)
5 1/3 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium (or beef; homemade is best; organic is next best)
2/3 tsp Sea salt, fine (depending on how salty your stock is, you might need to add less or more)
1 1/3 leaf Bay leaf

Instructions


  1. Place Wild Rice in a mesh strainer. Thoroughly rinse in cold water for 60 seconds, mixing rice with fingers to ensure each grain gets rinsed.
  2. Combine the Wild Rice with 4 cups of beef or chicken stock, salt and bay leaf in a medium-large saucepan with a tight fitting lid.
  3. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil. Give the rice a good stir, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 30-50 minutes.
  4. Wild rice bursts open when it’s cooked, so you can tell at a glance when it’s done. Taste a few morsels and keep cooking a few minutes longer if it’s not tender enough for your taste.
  5. Drain excess liquid if applicable, fluff with a fork and serve.
