Lately, I’ve been sleeping in too late to eat a good breakfast, and it’s been throwing off my whole day. So, I thought if I had some rice already cooked and in the refrigerator in the morning, I would have no excuse not to make a quick hot rice cereal and eat it. It was perfect. Not so sweet it spiked my blood sugars, but sweet from the raisins and dash of maple.
- 1 cup already cooked brown rice
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk/rice milk/whatever milk substitute you have on hand
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 cup raisins
- a dash of cinnamon (or, if you love cinnamon as much as I do, a couple of dashes)
- pinch of salt
Begin by heating milk on medium high heat. Add rice and cook for 5 to ten minutes, or until rice absorbs most of the milk and softens. Add maple syrup, raisins, salt, and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Serve and enjoy!
You could add any number of things to this- different dried fruits, fresh fruits, nuts, etc.
