Yield: 2 servings
|⅓ cup||Wild Rice|
|1 each||Bacon Strip; Thick, Lean|
|1 teaspoon||Butter; Unsalted|
|1 x||White Pepper; Freshly Ground|
Put the wild rice and water in a small sauce pan.
Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a bare simmer, cover and cook until the rice is tender, 1 to 1¼ hours. While the rice is cooking, saute the bacon until golden brown and crisp, then drain on a paper towel. Cut the bacon crosswise into thin julienne strips and set aside. When the rice is done, gently stir in the butter with a fork until melted; season to taste with salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss the rice with the bacon strips.
