If you can't find the frozen cooked wild rice, use 1 1/4 cups from a 15-ounce can of cooked wild rice. Want to cook the wild rice yourself? Heat 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice and 1 1/4 cups water to boiling in 2-quart saucepan; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 40 to 50 minutes until wild rice is tender.
