I had to experiment.
We absolutely love our wild rice, cooked. Did you know that wild rice is not actually a grain? It’s a grass!
We haven’t tried eating it raw. Kinda fun!
You’ll need to soak your wild rice for a couple of days – or until it cracks, but it’s worth it!
Oh, and make sure to change the water daily – or twice a day.
This will work with the rice cooked and cooled as well, but then it would not longer be a raw snack.
What you’ll need…
- 1c of soaked and cracked wild rice
- 1/4c of nut butter (today we used raw peanut butter)
- 1/4c of sesame tahini
- 2tbsp of agave
- 1tsp of freshly grated ginger
Place the rice into the food processor first and give it a whiz just to break it down. Add in the remainder of the ingredients and continue to process until it’s all just combined. Test the flavor… feel free to add another tablespoon of agave if you need it a bit sweeter, but you probably won’t. All of it works quite well together.
Take a pinch of the mixture and roll it into a ball.
Roll that ball in a few hemp seeds for added nutrition.
We placed them in the freezer for half an hour just to firm them up… and you could store them there or in the fridge.
They are quite moist so you definitely want to keep them chilled.
Next round we’re going to add in some unsweetened shredded coconut…or maybe some coconut flour? YUM!
Great little snack to pop in your mouth when you need a quick pick me up!
