Blooming Rice:

2 1/2 c. wild rice (unsoaked)


1 T. white truffle oil
2 T. coarsely chopped red bell pepper
1 1/4 t. fine Sea, Celtic or Himalayan Salt
1 t. fresh thyme
1 T. chopped chives
3/4 c. water
1 3/4 c. cashews (that have been presoaked)

Everything Else:

4 c. bloomed rice (from the 2 1/2 c. wild rice follow directions 1, 2 & 3)
1 T. nutritional yeast
1 1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 c. chopped red bell pepper
1/2 c. halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 t. finely chopped thyme
1/2 t. finely chopped rosemary
1/8 t. fine Sea, Celtic or Himalayan Salt
1 T. white truffle oil
3/4 c. diced Crimini mushrooms (optional)


1. Place rice in the food processor and “score” it by processing for 1 full minute.

2. To get the rice to “blossom,” transfer it to a large bowl and fill with water, until rice is covered by about 2 inches.

3. Allow to soak for several hours (up to 12) or until grains begin to open and soften. Rice will still be somewhat firm and perhaps a bit chewy. Rinse and use immediately or store in the fridge.

4. Prepare the sauce by blending all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Set aside.

5. Next, mix the remaining ingredients (a.k.a. “everything else”)  in a large bowl.

6. Add the sauce and mix well.

7. Serve immediately, or store in the fridge.
