Oh, Will Smith. Your song keeps floating in my mind as I read this recipe. Who loves wild rice? Or should I say… wild grass? Wild rice is not really a rice like Asian rice. Wild rice is actually a type of grass. I must admit that I am not that fond of it. Its texture is a bit rough for me, and it’s also a litte harder to chew. When you eat, always want to enjoy the food. And if the food is not enjoyable to eat, then how can you enjoy your meal? But my friends were able to convince me into trying it simply because of its health benefits.
Some of my friends eat wild rice for health reasons. And since I have a few minor health concerns myself (I always have indigestion because of lack of sleep and stress), I tried it. It doesn’t have claims about curing sickness, but eating it did help with my digestion problems. To make it more tolerable for me, I searched ways on how to prepare it without me concentrating on its texture in my mouth. And I am glad that I encountered this recipe that allows me to enjoy eating wild rice with gusto.
