Expert Tips

Wild rice is not actually rice, but the seeds of an aquatic grass native to shallow lakes and streams in the northern Great Lakes area. Wild rice is also commercially cultivated. Cultivated wild rice is the most readily available product, and is usually more economical than lake wild rice.

To cut about 280 milligrams of sodium from each serving, use reduced-sodium soy sauce and chicken broth.
