As the warm lazy days of summer give way to the cool crisper days of autumn, a Northern Minnesota specialty finds its way to the dining room table once again. Whether tossed into a casserole, whipped into a hearty soup, baked into warm bread, or simply missed with gourmet spices and seasonings, wild rice has long been a Minnesota Favorite. While true authentic Minnesota Wild Rice is not always easy to come by, using a gourmet wild rice seasoning is an easy way to replicate the taste. The following recipe uses a gourmet seasoning, "Wild, Wild Rice" from the Buffalo Creek Spices Company. The gourmet wild rice seasoning is a classic blend of spices, vegetable granules and cheese powders that turn any rice into a gourmet dish. The unique seasoning is flavorful, but not too spicy and it is sure to remind you of your first taste of authentic Minnesota Wild Rice.
The Gourmet Wild Rice Seasoning is specially blended for use on wild rice, but it is also great on white and brown rice, and all vegetables. After giving this recipe a try, you might find that you will want to experiment with Wild, Wild Rice on poultry, beef and pork, too.
