How to make RAW wild rice



2 cups of wild rice, soaked for 4 days (change water 2x a day)
1 cup cucumber, diced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced…
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup mixed fresh herbs (dill, basil, parsley) chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
2 T. lemon juice
sea salt, to taste
Nama Shoyu,  Bragg’s to taste
Dash of cayenne (optional)
2-3 T. olive oil

Soak rice until soft & chewy. (NOT hard or crunchy!)

Strain & mix in remaining  ingredients. Serve chilled.

***This makes a great stuffing for cabbage rolls or stuffed
cabbage boats to.***

Wild rice has 3x as much fiber as white rice and  twice as much protein, twice as much vitamin B6 as well as  twice as much iron. Vitamin E is one nutrient that wild rice has 4x as much as white rice and the nutrients vitamin K, thiamin, and riboflavin are some of the nutrients that wild rice has that white rice does not have any of. Wild rice  has  10x  as much folate as white rice too. Folate is a B vitamin!!

White rice strips the grain of most of its nutrients it is no wonder that wild rice is so overwhelmingly better for you.

I have also made this with Brown Rice. Whatever you happen to have on hand.
