Here's How to Cook Wild Rice On The Stovetop

It's easy to prepare, super flavorful, and totally fuss-free. Here's how to do it:

  1. Rinse your wild rice thoroughly under cold water. This will help to remove any dirt or debris that may be clinging to the grains.

  2. Add the wild rice to a large saucepan or pot, along with the appropriate amount of water or broth. If you're using 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. If you're using broth, you can use a little less liquid (about two cups per cup of wild rice) to add extra flavor to your dish. If you're not sure how much water or broth to use, you can check out our wild rice to water ratio guide for assistance.

  3. Bring the water or broth to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer the wild rice, covered, for about 45 minutes, or until the grains are tender and the liquid has been absorbed.

  4. 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 there you have it – perfectly cooked stovetop wild rice that's ready to be enjoyed in just a few simple steps!
