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.
