Wild Rice Salad

Combine cooked organic wild rice with diced vegetables such as bell peppers, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes. Toss with a zesty vinaigrette made from olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs like parsley and mint. Serve chilled as a refreshing side dish or add grilled chicken for a satisfying main course.

Stuffed Mushrooms

In a pan, sauté onions, garlic, and a medley of diced vegetables. Mix the sautéed veggies with cooked wild rice, adding a sprinkle of herbs with a handful of cooked black beans. Stuff the Portobello mushrooms with the mixture, top with a generous layer of plant-based cheese, and bake until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden and aromatic.

Sweet Black Rice Pudding

In a saucepan, combine washed wild rice, coconut milk, sweetener and a pinch of salt. Bring it to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the mixture has thickened, stirring occasionally. Once the rice is cooked, remove the saucepan from heat, stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and top with your favourite dried fruits.

The History of Organic Wild Rice

Organic wild rice has a rich history deeply rooted in Native American culture. Harvested for centuries by indigenous tribes in North America, wild rice holds a special place in their traditions and cuisine. Known as "manoomin" by the Ojibwe people, it was considered a sacred gift from the Great Spirit. The harvesting process, done by hand in canoes, has been passed down through generations. In the 20th century, efforts to cultivate and promote organic wild rice expanded, leading to its popularity as a nutritious and sustainable grain. Today, it continues to be cherished for its unique flavour and cultural significance.
