Wild Rice Blend
Our Wild Rice Blend takes the aquatic wild cereal grain and blends it with our gourmet Himalayan red rice and our nutty brown basmati rice to create a blend that is nutty, earthy and vibrant.
Rinse and combine 1 cup Wild Rice Blend with 2-1/4 cups water and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until tender, about 40 minutes.
Brown Rice, Red Rice, Wild rice.
Our Wild Rice Blend is a gourmet combination that provides ultimate texture, flavor and visual balance. Wild Rice itself is not actually rice, but instead a grass seed that is native to aquatic regions. Indigenous inhabitants of North America relied heavily on this super grain, even considering its presence to be sacred and a gift. When mixed with gourmet red rice and brown basmati, this earthy blend takes on a personality of its own, providing ease and balanced flavor and nutrition. This low-fat blend is naturally rich in protein, amino acids and fiber.
While this recipe can be done on a stovetop with extra attention to each ingredient it is totally unnecessary. Go ahead and prepare other dishes as the slow cooker turns our wild rice blend into an unforgettable side dish. The nutty crunch of wild rice mixed with chewy brown and red rice combines into a complex, hearty blend that pairs well with proteins and vegetables.
