Sorry to be a poo-pooer, but wild rice is actually not raw. All wild rice (including the green stuff) is "parched" or cooked, to reduce it's moisture content. I found some good info on this site: http://www.wildricenation.com/pages/processing-wild-rice/wild-rice-proce... and found out from the eden organic site where I thought I had bought real raw, wild rice (it IS green in color), that it is also parched. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble. But that's why it doesn't sprout, it only splits.

you can get wild rice in any health food store, I believe. If you do not have nama shoyu, you can use soy sauce instead. I believe you can soak the wild rice for 24 hours instead, you might get similar results.

Bare with me - I don't have a dehydrator and as I look at this salad I'm salivating. Do you need a dehydrator or can I soak the living daylights out of it :)Maybe I should start at the beginning - where do you buy real wild rice. And what is nama shoyu?

I soaked my wild rice for 2 days, and made a salad adding red onion, kale, avocado, tomatoes, olives and chopped romaine, drizzled with a dash of olive oil and braggs. It was very, very good! I had no idea wild rice was grass, not a grain, and that you could soak it! Thank you.

this looks so great. i just ordered some real wild rice so i could give it a go. I had no idea that real wild rice is not a grain at all but a grass. Awesome as I cannot digest grains but miss that chewy texture.

i make it similarly except instead of dehydrating i soak rice for day, better two. The rest ingredients are very same, maybe add celery or spicy peppers... looks wonderful. ~Thank you for sharing!

no, you just do as I wrote: you put the 1 cup wild rice in a container, pour over the 3 cups of water and seal the container and put in dehydrator for 24 hr. that is what the recipe calls for. this is not my recipe. the rice will soak up the water and become tender and in the same time it will dehydrate the water. this is the recipe. it comes out really good, very tasty. the rice has a bit of a smoky flavor.

Just to clarify...did u mean to soak for 24 hours, or drain and dehydrate for 24 hours...I just can't imagine dehydrating something in 3 cups of water.... ;) Am I missing something?
