Talking about easy, huh?
When I created this recipe, there was no par-boiled wild rice in the market yet. But many years later, I I found that there is par-boiled kind under my same favorite brand. I like both. Each offers its own benefits. You can interchanging them. But, I am going to stick to the original recipe here.
There is a difference between these 2 kinds of wild rice other than just the cooking time.
Regular wild rice is definitely heartier in texture. The volume you will get out of either one of them by following the package instructions is about the same. Par-boiled wild rice cooking time is half of the regular one.
So, which one should you choose? Here is how I look at it: There is always give or take in our daily lives. It depends on your lifestyle to make the best choices for yourselves.
1pound Italian Sweet Sausage (bulk)
2 Cup Regular Wild Rice
1/4 Cup Raisins /Crasins
3-4 Ribs Celery (diced)
3 1/2 Cup Water
