Something a little different to the regular oats porridge recipe, when your’e looking for something more filling or you are a little sick of oats.. rice! Brown rice is a good source of B vitamins which are needed for energy metabolism and for supporting the nervous system.
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 milk of choice
½ cup water
1 cinnamon quill
½ tsp cinnamon powder
Pinch of ginger powder or fresh ginger
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
- Combine rice, milk, water, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla in a pot over medium heat
- Allow to cook, stirring occasionally for approximately 10 minutes. You may need to add a little extra milk to keep it creamy.
- Pour into serving bowl, removing cinnamon quill, and allow to sit for 2 minutes (this will thicken it slightly)
- Top with ground flaxseed and another toppings you like, such as fruits or warmed milk
** I don’t generally add sweetener to my oats but you may like to add honey or sugar
