Rinse your wild rice thoroughly under cold water. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that may be clinging to the grains.
Add the wild rice to your slow cooker, along with the appropriate amount of water. The general rule of thumb is to use two and a half cups of water for every one cup of wild rice, but you may want to adjust this ratio depending on your personal preference for the level of chewiness.

Add any additional ingredients you'd like to include in your wild rice, such as diced onions, minced garlic, chopped carrots, sliced mushrooms, or diced bell peppers. You can also add a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper to taste, if you'd like.
Cover the slow cooker and set it to the low heat setting. Let the wild rice cook for about four to six hours, or until the grains are tender and the water has been absorbed.
When the wild rice is done, carefully fluff it with a fork and serve it up! You can enjoy the wild rice on its own, or you can use it as a base for a variety of dishes, such as salads, stir-fries, casseroles, and more.
And that's it! Now you're ready to serve up a big bowl of slow cooker wild rice that's sure to be a hit with everyone at the table.
