Planning Thanksgiving and thinking about a wild rice stuffing. I've heard wild rice IS and ISN'T gluten free. Anyone know? Thanks.

hmmm, wild rice isn't actually "rice" it is a grass, I don't think it has gluten in it naturally, but some brands may have some in it... as with anything, it's always a good idea to check with the manufacturer if you have any doubts.

Yep, plain ol' wild rice is gluten-free. If you're using it in a stuffing, I would encourage you to combine it with brown rice (for taste) and arborio rice (for texture). I find that a 1:2:1 (wild:brown:arborio) ratio works well. The wild rice will give you a nutty, chewy taste and texture, the brown rice will give an earthy taste, and the arborio will add a creaminess that is reminscent of bread based stuffings. (It's a stove-top cook, however, and you'll have to stir frequently, as this is technically a risotto.)

*Note: medium or short grain brown rice works better than long grain, again, for the creamy texture aspect.

Any plain wild rice will be gluten-free, but, for instance, Uncle Ben's flavoring packet for its wild rice has wheat in it. So you have to watch what it is you're eating.

Hi Steve! Just wanted to add - there's no such thing as a dumb question on this site! Don't worry about a question sounding silly, all questions have merit......

    • Good to know, I'm allergic to sulfa as well but have taken doxycycline for a different reason without problems. I'll be storing this idea for future reference....hopefully unneeded !
    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
