Chef’s tip

To prepare wild rice, rinse 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice;drain. In heavy saucepan, bring rice, 2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until tender (about 40 minutes). Drain, if necessary. One-half cup uncooked wild rice equals about 2 cups cooked rice. Use 1/2 cup in turkey burgers and freeze remaining for later use.
