Whenever I order Thai takeout I always be sure to ask for an extra side of brown rice to have on hand; I am horrible at making brown rice! Eating rice for breakfast is a wonderful way to incorporate healthy grains that are also easily digestible. This is a simple, yet flavorful rice porridge that is a great sub for all of you oatmeal lovers.
Ingredients – serves 1-2
- 1 cup of brown rice
- 1/2 cup almond milk, or milk of your choice
- 1 cup of steamed sweet potatoes, chopped into bite size pieces
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- handful of chopped walnuts
Combine all of the ingredients together in a small pan on medium low heat. Stir until well incorporated and then stir frequently to avoid burning. The mixture will take a good 6-8 minutes; the milk will be absorbed and it will have a creamy texture.
Feel free to add a sprinkle of more cinnamon when done if desired, as well as some nut butter. The first time I made this I did not have walnuts so I opted to use a dollop of almond butter instead.
