Nutty, chewy wild rice goes perfectly with creamy Northern beans, here blended together with celery and herbs and a simple vinaigrette.
Wild rice, indigenous to the Great Lakes region of the United States, grows in marshy bogs, rivers and lakes. It has a chewy texture and a nutty flavor.
If you can’t find wild rice in the freezer section of your grocery store, look for it in cans in the rice and dried bean aisle.
Cook wild rice when you have time and freeze in 1-cup portions in resealable plastic freezer bags. If you have the ingredients on hand, this is a good recipe for last minute preparation.
