#Recipe: Fude Style Manitoba Maple Wild Rice Pudding with Noasap Harvest wild rice

Last Updated on

I have a fondness for desert…one that I have passed on to my children! It seems like no meal is complete without a little something sweet at the end of it! I am always trying to find healthier alternatives to traditional sweets. Replacing a standard chocolate chip cookie with an oatmeal raisin one or fresh fruit with whipped cream still make my kids go YUM but I feel just a tad less guilty about giving in to the desert habit! When I recently received some wild rice from Noasap Harvest, I really wanted to make it into a rice pudding and was thrilled to see that they have just such a recipe on their website!

Our family is fortunate to live along the shore of beautiful Lake Athapapuskow. We are on the edge of the Canadian Shield and are surrounded by boreal forest. Our organic wild rice is grown in the pristine, isolated lakes of northern Manitoba, Canada. Its nutritional values and versatility may surprise you.

In browsing through the Noasap Harvest website I learned something very interesting…did you know that wild rice is not really rice at all but a grass? It is usually grown in man made lakes or ponds(paddy rice), where the lakes are drained in the fall for harvest. Naosap Harvest rice is all grown in Manitoba, Canada’s natural, pristine lakes which produce a longer, fuller darker grain.

This rice is certified organic through OPAM (Organic Producers Association of Manitoba), gluten free, and has NOT been genetically modified! It is a great source of fibre and iron. They also carry Wild Rice Flour as well as a selection of gift baskets. You can purchase the rice in sizes ranging from 1/2 pound to 50 pounds depending on your needs! You will get a free recipe card and cooking suggestions with each order.

This recipe was originally made by Fude Restaurant in Winnepeg. They served this topped with a creamy scoop of their house made vanilla ice cream! I decided to use a pistachio gelato instead…the nuttiness of the pistachio complimenting the earthiness of the rice and the green color added a nice contrast to the red cranberries. I halved this recipe and it made about 6 servings. You can find this and many other recipes on the Naosap Harvest website!

 Fude Style Manitoba Maple Wild Rice Pudding
Here is the Printable Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

soft, fully cooked wild rice 4.5 cups
2% milk 3.5 cups
whipping cream 3.5 cups
vanilla extract 2.25 tsp.
maple syrup 4 fl. oz
raisins 2.25 cups ( I used dried cranberries instead since I had them in the pantry!)
cinnamon 2.25 tsp.
nutmeg 2.25 tsp.
salt 2.25 tsp.

Instructions

1. ***PRE COOK 2 cups of wild rice in 8 cups of water on heat 4 for 1 hour. Once fully cooked, spread out on a sheet pan to cool. Once you have cooked the rice, you can start the pudding recipe.

2. In a casserole dish, combine all ingredients and bake at 325’F for 1.5 hours. (check after 1 hour to see how it’s doing). You want it to be thickened and creamy.

3. Stir the pudding occasionally while baking.

4. When done and cooled put into serving size bowls with a scoop of ice cream and toppings of your choosing.

So, my thoughts on Naosap Harvest wild rice? These grains of rice are very long with a deep black color to them. The smell of the rice simmering on my stove top was lightly sweet and earthy. I have had wild rice before but I have never seen grains with the size of Naosap Harvest’s!

This pudding recipe is incredibly easy to make and while it might take a few hours, it is favor low on the labor intensity scale. Simmer, mix, bake…stir occasionally. It is so creamy with a wonderful texture and chewiness. Just the right amount of sweetness and it is absolutely decadent!
