Vegan Wild Rice Recipes FAQ
Wild rice can be paired with stir fries, curries, and casseroles, or used in place of white or brown rice. If you’re choosing to use wild rice instead of white rice, be sure to allow extra cooking time for the wild rice since it takes much longer to cook than white rice.
While it’s not necessary to soak wild rice, soaking it will help it cook faster and make it more tender. Wild rice has a tendency to be tough and chewy at times, so taking the time to soak it, especially in a flavorful broth, can help make it extra delicious.
While it is not absolutely necessary, rinsing your wild rice prior to cooking will yield the best results. Rinsing wild rice removes most of its starchy outer layer that will become gummy once boiled, letting its nutty, chewy texture shine.
