Ground beef and wild rice casserole is an easy, one pot meal that goes together quickly. If you prefer, you can make homemade cream of mushroom soup and substitute for the soup concentrate and water. When I’m in a hurry, I use Pacific Organic Mushroom soup concentrate, which is gluten free and soy free. I use one BIG onion or several smaller onions. We love onions!

Wild rice gives this dish a firmer texture and lower carb count than the standard hamburger rice casseroles. I’ve been using wild rice more in cooking recently as part of my anti-candida, anti-psoriasis diet, and I enjoy it. Just be aware that it does take longer to cook than white or brown rice. Under-cooked wild rice is quite chewy, so make sure you allow enough cooking time. This dish can be made ahead and reheated on the stove top or in a crock pot. Just add a little extra liquid, if needed, to help with heat transfer and keep it from scorching.

Another note on wild rice – like wine, the flavor will vary depending on where it is grown. Sometimes it’s a little more nutty, sometimes more fishy. The majority of the “wild” rice in the U.S. and Canada is now cultivated, not wild harvested (more than 4 times as much is produced via cultivation), which is part of why wild harvested rice demands a premium price. There are also several different species that are all grouped under the category of “wild rice”. From The international Wild Rice Foundation:

In North America, the species, Zizania palustris, is found (primarily) in areas west and north of the Great Lakes. In addition, there are several other species that grow in limited quantities in other North American locations. Zizania aquatica is found growing in isolated pockets from New Jersey to Florida. And, Zizania texana is found growing in the San Marcos River area located just north of San Antonio, Texas. Also, the species, Zizania latifolia can be found growing in various regions of Asia.

So, if you’re into eating local, you may want to keep an eye out for the specific varieties that are native to your area.

If you have a favorite way to use wild rice, I’d love to hear about it.
