Though not directly related to "true" rice, wild rice is often used like regular rice. "It works really well when added to rice dishes," Thompson says. "And I like to add it to soup." Wild rice is a low fat, high fiber grain that's full of essential nutrients and minerals that may be deficient in your gluten-free diet, including iron, phosphorus, zinc and various B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, and folate).

Thompson also recommends eating brown rice, which is a good source of fiber, phosphorous and certain B vitamins, but to stay away from white rice that hasn't been enriched with nutrients (the milling process strips white rice of these things).
