One can't grow up in Minnesota without eating wild rice. Its sold everywhere! It grows wild out on the lakes. At almost any potluck, you are likely to see some type of dish made with wild rice.
I have several favorite wild rice recipes and this is one of them....Wild Rice Hot dish. I usually make it in the winter months. It has a rich nutty flavor....and is so warm and comforting. I like to serve it with a salad and slice of french bread.
It's a perfect meal for a cold Minnesota nite!
