Wild Rice with Tomatoes…


Such an easy dish to make with ingredients that are of hash DNA. It’s a side dish but at the same time I would easily enjoy it on its own as a main dish.

While any rice will do, I chose the hearty wild rice that goes very nicely with this hash.

Servings: 6 People


  • 500 gr Okra , thickly sliced about 1 cm thickness
  • 300 gr Wild Rice
  • 20 Cherry Tomatoes , halved
  • 200 gr Corn , frozen Kernels
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper , deseeded and diced to ½ cm size
  • 3 tablespoons fresh Parsley , leaves picked and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Thyme , home grown, leaves picked and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO , Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons White Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper


  • Place on high fire a medium/large pot filled with salted water. When it comes to a boil add the rice, reduce the heat and simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring 2-3 while cooking, until rice has softened but still a bit al-dente.
  • Remove from the heat and place in a sieve to drain. Immediately return to the pot and cover with the lid while placing a kitchen towel in-between. Allow for 3 minutes for the extra moisture to be absorbed, fluff with a fork and keep aside with the lid off.
  • In the meantime, wash and dry the Okra, then place in a flat dish, spread them all over so as not to be stacked on each other, and drizzle on top with the vinegar. Place in the sun for an hour.
  • Take a large sauté pan and place on medium fire. A minute later add the oil, wait for another minute to heat up and toss in the okra and sauté until a bit charred, about 10 minutes.
  • Increase the heat and add the corn and bell pepper. Toss for 2 minutes, add the tomatoes and toss for 2 more minutes. Then pour the balsamic vinegar and mix well.
  • We build our dish by combining into the rice the vegetables along with the parsley and thyme. Season with the salt and pepper, toss couple of times and serve.
