Spicy Wild Rice

We love rice, just about any kind of rice, but it's so high in carbs neither of us can eat a lot of it. Wild and brown rice are a little easier on the blood sugar and of those we prefer wild rice. So, wild rice is our quick and easy side dish on busy nights. I keep a small container of cooked wild rice in the fridge and it's easily modified to suit any main dish. One of our favorite ways to eat wild rice is this highly seasoned, sassy way.

Spicy Wild Rice

1 tsp olive oil
1 or 2 green onions, chopped (top and all)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups cooked wild rice
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper
a few dashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add chopped green onions and garlic and saute until soft. Add rice and seasonings, turn heat to medium, and cook, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.
