Directions

  1. Rinse wild rice; place in a saucepan with water and sea salt. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for an hour or until the gains are soft and the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and allow to steam, covered, for 5-10 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  2. Heat oil in large saute pan. Add the hazelnuts and saute until aromatic. Add garlic, ginger, and orange zest and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add leeks, shiitakes, and another pinch of salt. Saute until vegetables soften, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add rice to saute pan, season with pepper and additional salt to taste and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low until rice is warmed through. Remove pan from heat. Stir in cilantro and orange juice and serve.
