1. Cajun Wild Rice

I’m always at a loss for what to make as a side dish. I mean, I know I can always go to my old stand-by and put some rice in a rice cooker with some chicken bullion but sometimes that just doesn’t cut it. Then I go to my jazzed-up rice list that includes but is not limited to Bacon Spanish Rice (yummy!) and this Cajun Wild Rice (yummy yummy!)

3. Chicken & Wild Rice Bake

I first started making this dish for my parents and siblings when I was in high school. As the eldest girl, I claimed free reign over the kitchen. Over the years I transitioned the recipe from using Cornish hens and boxed rice mix to easier-to-wield chicken pieces and a homemade blend of rice and seasonings.

4. Zucchini & Wild Rice Gratin

What do you do when two huge zucchini babies are presented to you? Bob’s mom gave us some zucchini, along with other produce from their garden, and I was very excited about it. Not because I have a particular love for squash or anything, but because I had been perusing a Food52 cookbook of basic, yet satisfying classic recipes recently. I came across a zucchini gratin that promised to make zucchini creamy, almost like a scalloped potato.

14. Chicken Wild Rice Casserole

The name “wild rice” is kind of misleading. It’s not really rice at all. It’s from a completely different plant, and it has a completely different taste and texture. Chewy on the outside, tender on the inside, with a kind of earthy flavor that you definitely won’t get from plain old white rice.
