I love wild rice. Is there anyway to soften the rice without cooking it?

ive seen posts saying its not actually really raw, that its been steamed or something. though ive also seen alot of raw foods recipes using it. i think the recipes were developed before people knew it wasnt raw... i also read theres a certain kind you can get thats still hand-harvested by the native americans or something that is actually raw, but i guess its hard to get....

No rice is raw?

i found a seller on ebay that has raw, organic, wild rice. not cooked in any way.
i have not bought any yet. i am afraid soaking and sprouting it wont equal the same taste/texture as cooked rice, and so have not bothered yet (but eventually will try it!). if i am wrong about the results, please share!!
anyhow, goodluck and let us all know if you try any and how it is!

Here you go:
From that article:
One way to prepare it is to soak overnight in spring water. It will double in size. Rinse off in a colander. Season with olive oil, diced garlic, onion, parsley, celery and sea salt, herbs and spices. Top with chopped nuts and Living Tree sundried olives that you’ve pitted and diced. Alternatively, you can put in a blender for a delightful porridge. Anne Marie Vought of Bloomsberg, Pennsylvannia gave us this suggestion.

wild rice is not rice in the traditional sense, it's a grass. so it can be raw. regular rice, though, is always heated in some way.

Certain store bought rice sprouts very well, like long and short grain brown.
However, the taste is only a little better than plain cardboard. Here's some I sprouted a while back.
