  2. Raisins /Crasins vs any dried berries or dried fruit
  3. Celery vs Shredded carrots, diced bell peppers or frozen green peas

Talking about easy, huh?

Par-Boiled or Regular Wild Rice

When I created this recipe, there was no par-boiled wild rice in the market yet.  After so many years of creating it, I explored different types of wild rice.  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 Mix I use in this recipe

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
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  1. Preheat a Dutch oven or a big pot at medium high heat
  2. Add oil and sausage
  3. Use spatula to break sausage into bite size and brown (about 8-10 minutes; don't worry about cooking through the meat at this time.  It will continue cooking with the rice)
  4. Add rice, water, salt and pepper
  5. Stir to combine and let the mixture come to a boil
  6. Turn down the heat to medium low to low and simmer for 40 minutes covered with lid
  7. Stir in celery and raisins and cook for another 5 minutes and serve
