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.
