Super Wild Rice

This wild, wild rice dish brings crazy flavor with cauliflower, bell peppers, tomatoes and more.

Ingredients

Wild Rice

  • Black wild rice
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 orange or multicolored bell pepper
  • 8-10 strawberries, quartered
  • A container of mixed color cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped
  • Mint

Dressing

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Steps

Wild Rice

  1. Add half a bag of wild rice to a pot, along with double the amount of water called for on the bag's directions. Bring to a simmer, lower the heat, cover and cook for 45 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the cauliflower into large, thin slices; lay them out on a baking sheet, and add salt and olive oil. Cook at 400°F until slightly golden, about 15 minutes.
  3. De-seed the bell pepper and cut thin julienned pieces the long way. Add peppers to a large mixing bowl, add the quartered strawberries, the halved cherry tomatoes and a clove of finely minced garlic.
  4. Fold the almonds in a dish towel and beat them with a pot, or cut them up on a cutting board, and add to the bowl.
  5. When the cauliflower and rice are done, add them to the bowl. Add dressing, mint and salt to taste. Serve immediately or at room temp.

Dressing

  1. In a Mason jar, combine the juice of 2 lemons with 3x more olive oil and a tablespoon of Dijon; shake to combine.
