I get bored easily when it comes to cooking and have to try mixing and matching to liven things up a bit. This Healthy Rice Porridge is a kind of breakfast fusion food. Scotland meets the Far East, well rice wise anyway!
Healthy Rice Porridge
Porridge is synonymous with Scotland, and that age old oaty mash is beloved of breakfasters worldwide.
However you don’t just have to make porridge with the ubiquitous oat, you can use seeds and nuts, other types of grains, or use up leftover brown Basmati rice in this Rice Porridge I’ve made here.
This simple breakfast ticks many boxes for me; it’s a great way to use up leftover rice, it’s healthy and filling, it’s easy and quick to make and it tastes great too. What more could you want first thing in the morning!
What type of rice
I’ve used brown Basmati rice but you can of course use any cooked rice that you fancy. I soak my cooked rice overnight by covering it with almond milk and dropping in a few mixed berries like raspberries and blueberries, then leaving it in the fridge overnight.
How to make rice porridge
In the morning I simply transfer it to a small pot and add a few drops of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of honey and heat for 5 minutes till piping hot.
Serve with a swirl of yogurt and maybe a sprinkling of crushed nuts and a few more berries to finish things off.
A quick and easy breakfast that will keep you going till lunch time.
