Helpful hints

  • Divide leftover rice into single servings, place in small freezer bags and freeze. To reheat for a quick meal later, microwave for 1-2 minutes or place freezer bag in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes.
  • If quick-cooking wild rice is unavailable prepare regular wild rice as follows: Rinse wild rice in 3 changes of hot water; drain. Combine wild rice and 1-1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer 50 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
