This came in one of my emial. Sounds like a simple way to soften this so called "rice" for your recipes. I can't wait to try this.


  1. You want to fix this the night before you need it.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Using a heavy kettle (with a lid), bring the water to a boil.
  4. When the water comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat off and add the rice.
  5. Stir so the wild rice is evenly distributed.
  6. Put the lid on the kettle and put into the oven.
  8. Do not open the oven until morning.
  9. If there is any liquid left in pan, drain off.
  10. Then add to your salads, soups or casseroles.

How easy! Wished I had known about this years ago as we love Byerly's Wild Rice Soup. Made a half batch, came out with 6 cups, and froze ours in portions for soup making. Thank you Charlotte J for sharing a very convenient recipe.

This worked so well! I added some bouillon to the water for flavoring but otherwise followed it to a T. So nice to sleep through the aroma that good wild rice can give off and I did not miss the steam and heat that seems to fill the kitchen normally! Thanks Charlotte!
