To enjoy these dishes, we recommend that you cook a large batch of wild rice at one time ―enough to use throughout the week.
Add a spoonful of pesto sauce to a cup of cold cooked wild rice. We like the CIBO Naturals line. You can also add cold cuts, cold peas -or any other vegetable, and Parmesan cheese.
If you’re cutting back your carbs by avoiding pasta, try mixing wild rice, tomato sauce, Ricotta cheese, and chopped basil. We like Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce.
We also enjoy adding a scoop of hummus to a cup of cold cooked wild rice. We love Sabra Hummus, made of mashed chickpeas and sesame seed paste. Just a add lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and your favorite salad dressing.
Instead of a bowl of oatmeal, why not make a wild rice hot cereal to give you all the energy you need throughout the day. Put 1/2 cup cooked wild rice in a bowl, then pour 1/4 cup of low-fat milk over the rice, top with your favorite fresh berries, then drizzle with 1 tbsp Grade A Pure Maple Syrup. We like Vermont Maple Syrup. Reheat in microwave.
To liven up your scrambled eggs at breakfast, add wild rice and salsa. We particularly enjoy Green Mountain Gringo® Salsa.
