Wild Rice

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Cook's Basics -

Like its name sug­gests, this aquatic plant grows wild in shal­low waters and is na­tive to North Amer­ica and China. Al­though there are sev­eral species of wild rice, this wild grain is gen­er­ally high in pro­tein, ly­sine, and fi­bre. Wild rice is no longer pop­u­lar in Asia, but the stems of the Manchurian wild rice plant are eaten through­out South­east Asian and China.
