Wild rice is packed protein, B vitamins and minerals like calcium and magnesium, and is gluten-free like all rice. To cook wild rice: bring 3 cups water or stock to a boil, stir in 1 cup uncooked wild rice reduce heat and simmer, covered 40-45 minutes or just until kernels puff open. Uncover and fluff with a fork and simmer an additional five minutes. Drain off any excess liquid. Make between 3-4 cups cooked rice. Take the time to roast the hazelnuts, it only takes a few minutes and is worth it! Purchase cranberries naturally sweetened with orange juice for best results.
