Expert Tips

  • If you can't find wild rice, try a wild rice blend or brown rice instead.
  • If you don't have time to cook wild rice, try one of the precooked wild rice products instead. Check your supermarket in the grains aisle for a precooked pouch of ready-to-serve wild rice, or the freezer section for frozen cooked wild rice.
