Wild Rice Delight
Yummy. Hearty. Light. Nutty. Sweet. Filling!
8 ounce Organic Raw Wild Rice, Soak 1-3 Days
1 sprinkle Organic Raw Dried Cranberries
1 Organic Raw Apple, Chopped as desired
1 Organic Raw Juicy Orange, Squirt out juice. Then dice as desired.
1 sprinkle Organic Raw Cilantro, Toss in leaves only, as desired.
Soak wild rice to desired softness. I soaked mine in the fridge for several days, changing the water several times. Though, I’m no expert at this – so I hope I did it right! The rice was soft yet firm, chewy and yummy. Some might want to soak it more…or maybe this variety does not soften up more? I used Lundberg Organic Wild Rice, “Exotic & Savory Wild Grain” and I’d suggest it to anyone comfy trying a hearty raw dish.
Toss in raw dried cranberries, as desired.
Chop up and toss in apple.
Pull off a tiny little bit of the orange peel – just enough to squeeze out some juice by hand, while keeping the orange intact. Coat the rice with the juice – to desired amount – and then peel, slice and toss the rest of the orange into the dish.
Pluck off and toss in as many little cilantro leaves as you desire.
Mix it all together and serve.
YUM - and ((so)) easy and filling!
