You can’t beat the crockpot for convenience on a busy day. Often though, you sacrifice texture of some foods when they cook the entire day in your absence - rice, for example. This combination still has the satisfying chewiness of wild rice that you would expect when preparing it traditionally.
My daughter had surgery (for the second time!) yesterday afternoon, and this was waiting for us when we finally made it back home. Nothing like the aroma of home cooking when you walk in after a stressful day.
Wild rice is often finicky - but I love it anyway. I have a hard time knowing how long to cook it to that “just right” stage. I was pleasantly surprised when my little experiment had such good results.
Next time you want a rice dish in the crockpot, be daring and try it with wild rice. All the extra cooking time becomes your friend instead of your enemy.
