This nutty wild rice is with its Asian-inspired flavors makes a terrific side for seafood, poultry, pork and beef.
As far as I’m concerned a meal isn’t complete without an outstanding side dish. This recipe for nutty wild rice paired perfectly with my Asian glazed grilled salmon.
I’ll take a nutty wild rice as a side dish any day of the week over white rice. As far as I’m concerned it has the best texture and flavor. I’ll cook up a batch in my rice cooker and freeze it in portions for later use. How easy is that? Then all I have to do is add a few seasonings and some vegetables and I have the perfect side dish.
Don’t forget to save the leftovers. Those bits of meat chopped into your rice makes a perfect mid-day meal. Happy cooking!
