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

  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. 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.
