One 6 ounce package of raw wild rice yields three to four cups of cooked wild rice.
Wild rice is high in protein and fiber, low in fat and contains no additives or preservatives.
To save time, keep a supply of cooked wild rice on hand. Just cook a large portion ahead of time and freeze in small portions.
To thaw frozen wild rice quickly, place in a strainer and either run hot through it or place over a steaming kettle. The rice will be ready to use in just a few minutes.
