Recipe by

Wild rice is a misnomer, as it is not actually rice, but rather an aquatic grass similar to corn. This tall, aquatic grass has long blades that grow best in the shallow waters of the Great Lakes region of the US (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio). Wild rice is the only grain native to North America and comes in a myriad of colors in the darker hues—green, tan, brown. This dense grain is high in protein, high dietary fiber, high anti-oxidants, low in fat, does not contain gluten, and a good source of certain minerals and B vitamins. So you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
