Fregola Rustica Mix
Fregola Rustica Mix is an enticing mix of wholesome quinoa, wild rice and imported Fregola sarda. We took the same ancient grains, gourmet rice and imported pasta we sell individually and combined them for an elegant, savory, quick-cooking blend.
Combine 1 cup Fregola Rustica Mix, 1-1/2 cups water and pinch of salt in saucepan set over high heat. Bring to boil, immediately reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook 20-25 minutes or until Fregola is tender and all liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Quinoa, wild rice, durum wheat semolina. (Contains wheat).
This hearty blend combines creamy, crunchy quinoa, Fregola sarda and quick-cooking wild rice. With a range of shapes, textures and colors, it makes a gorgeous plate presentation.
We source certified organic golden quinoa from the South American highlands where it was first cultivated for our Quinoa.
Wild Rice is a highly prized, nutritious natural relative of white rice harvested from an aquatic grass that grows in isolated lakes and river beds around North America. We procure wildly grown, expertly harvested and parched rice for our Wild Rice.
Grown in the Sardinian region of Italy, Fregola Sarda is a tiny, round pasta, similar to couscous, that has been lightly toasted with nutty flavor. The "sarda" refers to Sardinia, where it's been a staple for thousands of years. This obscure, delicious grain is often referred to as Sardinian couscous, but Fregola larger, coarser and rougher, making it a better vehicle for flavors and sauces.
Our Fregola Rustica Blend is a hearty mix of toasted fregola, quinoa and wild rice. In this recipe, the complex textures and nutty flavors work well with the richness of sausage and mushrooms, while crushed red pepper and white wine give the dish a well-rounded flavor profile.
