A nourishing breakfast which promotes energy and vitality and keeps you warm and cosy through winter months. Warming aromatics like cinnamon and ginger make it absolutely irresistible.
Brown rice porridge
1 cup cooked short-grain brown rice
1 cup milk (I like a combination of rice and coconut)
1 cinnamon stick
thin slice of fresh ginger
1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped or ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed (optional)
a little honey, to serve
Combine rice, milk, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla in a pot. Heat gently and simmer for 10 minutes, adding a little extra milk if necessary. Your porridge should be creamy. Serve alone or topped with flaxseed, stewed fruit, honey and extra hot milk.
