Goose Valley Wild Rice Review

My family loves all kinds of rice.  We eat rice a few times a week.  I think rice and wild rice goes with almost anything and it's so easy to make too.  I am always looking for new types of rice to make.  Goose Valley offers a really nice selection of wild rice and rice products.  They are the biggest producer of wild rice.  They handpick their rice and it's from one location.  They even offer organic rice products too!  I received 3 of their products to sample.  I received Wild Rice, Rice and Bean Fusion and Brown and Wild Rice Fusion.  I was excited to try all of them!  

Goose Valley Wild Rice is the first product that I sampled.  If you have not eaten wild rice it is different than your typical white or brown rice.  It has more of a nutty flavor to it.  I personally love it and so does my family.  It's a great healthy and nutritious side dish too!  How would you serve this?  I cooked mine with broth and it really gives it some great flavor.  I also like to serve this with things like some sauteed mushrooms and onions!  The wild rice was really good and my family loved it.

Next I'm going to talk about Goose Valley's Rice and Bean Fusion.  I love this!  It is so good and easy to make.  I mostly love that it is a wonderful combination of brown rice, red beans, black beans, wild rice and red rice.  This is an easy side dish for any meal.  This is great with chicken, beef, pork or even fish.  I love that it could even be an easy dinner if you want to put something like sausage in it too.  I could see that as being a really great one dish meal.  You are completely in control of seasoning this!  I like that you can use broth or stock and flavor it as you choose.  You could even put some sauteed veggies in it too!  I cooked my Rice and Bean Fusion in chicken broth and it was another hit with the family!

We also really enjoyed the Brown and Wild Rice Fusion from Goose Valley.  This also makes a great side dish!  This is also is a very versatile rice.  You can cook this with water or you can use broth or stock.  The broth or stock really adds some great flavor to the rice.  I like that you are in control of the flavor on this!  This is a very flavorful rice and because it has an almost nutty flavor from the brown and wild rice in it.  This was very easy to prepare and is a healthy side dish!

What variety of Goose Valley Rice would you want to try and how would you serve it?  If you want to learn more about their products you can visit their website and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
