Brown rice porridge

    30 min

    An excellent way of using up leftover brown rice. It's great for breakfast. Whip up this batch of brown rice porridge by simmering together cooked brown rice, milk, dried blueberries, cinnamon, honey, egg, vanilla and butter. You can add whatever dried fruit you fancy. In fact, you could even serve it as a healthy rice pudding!

    Just lovely. I was looking for an alternative to oats as my daughter is allergic. This is something like a rice pudding but more porridge like and the brown rice is healthy and filling. We've experimented with lots of different additions, including currants, sultanas and cranberries. One can really get creative with this recipe. Great idea, thank you  -  16 May 2013


    This recipe is wonderful, hearty, healthy and satisfying.I've adapted it to make my own version of "instant porridge". I cook up a large batch of brown rice in the microwave (30 minutes on high). I divide the cooked rice into individual servings (2/3 cup rice in each plastic bag). I add 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and a handful of raisins to each and then freeze. At breakfast, remove from bag, put in a bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Stir in 1/2 cup milk, 2 Tablespoons of egg substitute (like egg beaters) and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Microwave for one and a half minutes. Stir and serve. Instant, healthy and yummy!  -  29 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I like breakfast comfort foods and was pretty happy with this recipe. Skipped the egg and thought it came out fine. Tried subbing chopped apple and raisins the first time and used fresh blueberries and almonds the second time I made it. Liked the tartness of the blueberries better.  -  26 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
