Basmati Rice

  • Does anyone know if basmati rice is considered "wild rice"?  The authorized foods list shows wild rice and brown rice as being allowed.  In the BFL cookbook I noticed a few recipes use jasmin rice (which I think is similar to basmati) I was wondering if basmati rice is allowed as well.


  • Hi SMB2003.

    I am saying YES. However, you need the BROWN variety, not the processed White variety,

    Wild rice is just that - unprocessed - hence that is fine too.
