Brown Rice Porridge

First of all, did you enter the slow cooker giveaway?

If not, then you better submit your comment before reading this post! 🙂

Today’s recipe is from Eating Bird Food, one of my go-to recipe blogs. Brittany always posts such interesting healthy recipes. I am an oatmeal/breakfast bowl lover, and am always on the hunt for new grain-based breakfasts. While the idea of rice in the morning did not appeal to me at first, the result was a creamy porridge with more of a chewy texture than oatmeal. I highly recommend it!

I love that this recipe still has the flexibility of oatmeal, in that you can add pretty much any flavor or fruit to keep breakfast interesting. For this batch I added a dollop of almond butter and some sliced strawberries. I bet it would also be delicious with fresh blueberries and sliced almonds, or pumpkin and cinnamon in the fall.

The recipe can be found here.

Also, Minnie was correct in her guess about the mystery vegetable from yesterday! I will post that recipe tomorrow.

  1. That looks really good! The idea of rice used as a base for fruit filled breakfast sounds yummy.

    Since you are an oatmeal lover like us, there is a post for Baked Oatmeal on our blog that you might like. Super easy to make, and tastes GREAT right out of the oven, or as a dessert / snack later on. If you try it, would love to get your feedback.

      No way! I didn’t know that. Do you know what they flavor it with?

        anything- but you can make it with basically any grain, add fruit (dried is what i often had cuz then it gets cooked and moist) and they put in butter and salt and hmmmm usually that’s it but you can make it however you like

  3. The photos look brilliant Erin!

    Rice for breakfast is something that’s pretty common in the region I belong to in India. Brown rice is makes it sound interesting. Off to check the recipe.
