Despite what its name suggests, wild rice isn't actually rice, but rather a member of the grass family. Cooked like rice, however, it takes on a nutty, delicious flavor, and to top it all off, it boasts far fewer carbs than either white or brown rice. In the recipe below, it forms the base of a delicious salad featuring tons of great flavors and colors.
For this recipe, you'll toss warm wild rice with roasted butternut squash, strawberries, and raw kale. Once massaged with a vinaigrette and tossed with the rice, some of the edge of the raw kale is taken off, making it tender and super tasty. Serve warm or cold for a tasty lunch or dinner.
