Some information about rice

Rice is the most popular grain in the world, since half of the world’s population relies on it as a staple of their diet. Rice is a good source of manganese, selenium and magnesium. You can find rice in long-grain, short-grain and round varieties, as well as brown and white. White rice has the bran and germ removed. Basmati rice is a fragrant and flavorful variety of white rice.

Wild rice is the dark-colored, rice-like seed of fresh-water grasses. It grows naturally in the northern lakes of North America and was popular with northern Native American cultures. It is good source of niacin, folic acid and magnesium.

Although it is called “wild rice,” it is actually not rice at all and much of the wild rice we eat is not wild at all, but cultivated. Connoisseurs will tell you that the wild-growing, hand-harvested wild rice is far superior in flavor to the cultivated and often hybridized varieties.

Another option

Amaranth, a nutritious, gluten-free grain that was popular with the Aztecs in Central America, can also be used with this recipe. It is a good source of the amino acid lysine, which is not usually found in grains, It is also good source of fiber, along with some minerals and vitamins and is mild and easy to digest compared to wheat.

Cook whole amaranth in water with  a ratio of one cup grain to 2 1/2 cups water for about 20 minutes and serve as hot cereal or pilaf.
