I’ve been getting into brown rice lately, a lot. Ever since I learned to prepare rice in the following method in my rice cooker, I have a big batch of it ready cooked and ready to use, in the fridge. It’s wonderful. I love brown rice, warm with sesame seeds and sea salt sprinkled over it, cold tossed into salads, and for breakfast. The following is a very easy way to eat brown rice as a warm cereal in the morning. It’s delicious, and has no added sugar!
Here’s how I prepare my brown rice:
Rinse the dry rice at least twice.
Soak the rice for at least 3 hours in filtered water. (You can soak it for as many as 20 hours or more!)
Put the soaked rice in your rice cooker or pot, and measure in the correct amount of water, using the water in which you soaked the rice.
That’s it! The rinsing and soaking will yield the most amazingly fluffy, unsticky brown rice you have ever had!
Now, on to the cereal:
Super Easy Brown Rice Hot Cereal
1 – 2 tablespoons raw almond butter (I always keep a jar of this on hand)
1/2 to 1 cup precooked brown rice
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Put the almond butter in a microwave-proof bowl, and mix in a little bit of water at a time until the consistency of almond milk (which is what it basically is at this point).
Stir in the brown rice and cinnamon.
