Cooked Wild Rice

READY IN: 1hr 15mins

I agree with jimani, this is one of those recipes you just don't change. Wild rice really does need the full time allotted for cooking, 20 minutes as noted in one review is not nearly enough and would account for the "small portion."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan.
  2. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  3. While the rice is cooking, saute the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on a paper towel.
  4. Cut the bacon crosswise into thin julienne strips and set aside.
  5. When the rice is done, gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Just before serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips.
