05 Jun Warming Brown Rice Porridge
When ever we cook up rice or any form of starch option, we tend to cook in bulk so I can often have cooked rice, quinoa or roast veges in the fridge. This is a great way to make meals faster and save yourself a lot of time when preparing meals. Also means you always have a good option on hand when you need it. Plus it never takes any extra time, all it means is you just cook a little extra when you do cook. This is smart cooking!
So this breakfast is a great option if you are a porridge kind of person and can’t handle oats. Great way to use up some cooked brown rice and also tastes pretty amazing to. Great on a chilli cold morning.
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup coconut or nut milk
1 teaspoon honey
pinch ground cinnamon
pinch ground vanilla or 2-3 drops vanilla extract
Optional – pumpkin seeds, coconut and feijoas to garnish.
Combine cooked brown rice, milk, honey, cinnamon and vanilla in a pot and gently bring up to heat.
Stir while heating and allow everything to combine, continue to simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Serve warm with your favourite toppings.
