Categories: Vegetables, Rice/grains



Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. While the rice is cooking, saute the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on a paper towel. Cut the bacon crosswise into thin julienne strips and set aside. When the rice is done, gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips. Makes 1 cup
