To cook the wild rice, rinse 1/3 cup wild rice in a colander under cold running water. Place the rice in a small saucepan with 1 cup water. Bring to boiling and reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for about 50 minutes or until the wild rice is very tender. (Add more water, if needed, during the cooking.) Drain off any excess liquid and measure out 1 cup of rice.
