Grandma Ruth’s Wild Rice

As sent to me by my Mom (unedited).  For my updated version, check here.

Quick soak method for the wild rice:

  • Wash required amount of rice in colander
  • Stir rice into 3 times the amount of boiling water (1 c. rice-3 cups water)
  • Par boil for 5 minutes only
  • Remove from heat. Let soak in the same water (covered) for 1 hour
  • Drain, wash and cook as directed in following recipe


  • Required amount of cooked rice (I fill the casserole I want to use)

Heat in frying pan:

  • ¼ c. butter

Add the following, and sauté for about 5 minutes:

  • 1 med sized onion finely chopped,
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder,
  • ½ lb. Fresh mushrooms, sliced.
  • ½ cup slivered almonds

Mix into wild rice and pour over mixture:

  • 1 can consommé and salt and pepper to taste.

Bake in 350 degree oven for about an hour.  You will be able to tell when it’s done.
