I usually make a big ol’ batch of brown rice weekly. I typically use it for lunches and dinners, but here is a yummy (and super quick) brown rice breakfast recipe that is great for the cooler mornings of fall and winter. It’s got cinnamon, which is naturally warming and spicy, and I also add almond butter to kick up the protein content, but you can use whatever nut butter you choose. Tahini would also be lovely in this recipe!
Brown Rice Porridge
2 cups pre-cooked brown rice
1/2 cup almond milk
2 Medjool dates, chopped
1 tbsp. pure maple syrup or brown rice syrup
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. almond butter (or tahini)
Teensy pinch of sea salt
In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine almond milk, sweetener, almond butter and dates. Bring to a low boil, and then simmer on low for about 5 minutes to soften the dates.
Add the brown rice, cinnamon and sea salt and cook for about 5 minutes until your rice is soft.
A little preparation can go a long way! Having pre-cooked brown rice is so helpful; especially if you lead a busy life and/or have kids! Brown rice is so versatile, as you can see!
