Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

This Oven Cooked Wild Rice (High-Altitude) post is dedicated to everyone who finds cooking rice stressful. I’ve cooked rice that’s been soupy and hard in the middle all at once, too dry, and porridge consistency mushy. I’m now confident about how great my wild rice is going to turn out every time, thanks to this oven method.

I’ve posted an oven method for making High-Altitude Oven Brown Rice in a similar post. When I make Vegan Swedish Meatless Balls, I end up making the wild rice beforehand and leaving it in the fridge until I’m ready to use it. I also make a batch of this wild rice to put in my Curried Coconut Carrot Soup or to eat in salads.

Sea-Level or High-Altitude?

I suspect this recipe works at both sea-level and high-altitude. However, I’ve only made it at high altitude.

Wild Rice is Grass

Look for straight wild rice as opposed to a blend containing wild rice. Wild rice is actually grass, but it looks and cooks like rice.
