Units Scale
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Rinse the wild rice under cold water and add it to a pot with the water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the grains are tender and have a chewy texture.
  2. In a separate pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft.
  4. Add the vegetable broth and white wine to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by half.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly.
  6. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the mushroom mixture to the wild rice and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. Serve the mushroom wild rice hot, garnished with chopped parsley or chives, if desired.  Enjoy!


  1. It’s important to note that the cooking time for wild rice can vary depending on the specific type of wild rice and the age of the grains. It may take longer to cook older, drier grains.
  2. Rinse the rice: Before cooking wild rice, it’s a good idea to rinse it under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.
  3. Use a large pot: Wild rice expands significantly during cooking, so it’s important to use a large pot with plenty of room.
  4. Use a ratio of 2:1 water to rice: For every cup of wild rice, use two cups of water. This will help to ensure that the rice cooks evenly and fully absorbs the water.
  5. Avoid stirring: Wild rice does not need to be stirred during cooking, as this can cause the grains to break. Instead, simply let it cook until it is tender.
  6. Drain any excess water: Once the wild rice is cooked, drain any excess water and serve immediately, or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
