Got a wild rice recipe that is a favorite?
Enter it in the 7th Annual “Get Wild with Wild Rice” Recipe Contest, sponsored by the Minnesota Cultivated Wild Rice Council.
Recipes entered go head-to-head in a taste test conducted by council culinary specialists, according to Beth Nelson, council president.
Participants have three opportunities to win:
1. Up to 16 finalists will be selected to have their recipes published. Each finalist also will receive three pounds of wild rice and a choice of various prizes.
2. A Grand Prize of $500 will be awarded to one winning recipe chosen by a panel of judges

3. In September, winning recipes will be posted on our website for an online contest celebrating National Rice Month. America will vote for their favorite recipe and one lucky winner will receive a $250 People’s Choice Award.
The deadline for recipe submission is June 13.
