Herbed Wild Rice

Wild rice is actually not a type of rice at all; it is in fact a long-grain marsh grass that has a chewy texture and nutty flavor.

  • servings: 4




  • 2 cups wild rice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh marjoram
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Step 1

    Rinse wild rice well under cold running water. Drain well, and set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Stir in wild rice, reduce to a simmer, and cook until wild rice is tender, about 40 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Drain wild rice, transfer it to a bowl, and stir in olive oil, parsley, and marjoram. Season with salt and pepper, and serve at room temperature or chilled.
