Hot Rice Cereal


I'm sitting here typing away on my laptop with an empty bowl sitting next to me. Empty bowl and full stomach.



Yep. But really, this is becoming a bad habit. I have been trying to eat more fruit for breakfast, but too often I opt out on the green smoothie for this super delicious, satisfying, warm bowl full of gluten-free goodness.

So be warned. If you make this, you will have a hard time not making it at least a couple of times a week. Better stock up on rice!

This hot rice cereal is as usual, gluten, dairy and sugar free. I use a little bit of natural maple syrup to sweeten it up, but feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer.

For those of you who miss that steamy bowl of oatmeal from your glutenous days, this is a wonderful substitute.

Wish I had an actual picture of the cereal to show you!


Ingredients:

1 cup leftover cooked rice (you can cook it in the morning if you wish, but that will take much longer)

coconut milk (you could also use almond or any other type of non-dairy milk you like, but the
coconut milk is thicker, so it makes the dish nice and creamy)

3 Tablespoons butter

1 Tablespoon maple syrup

dash or two of salt

handful of raisins


Directions:

Place all the ingredients except the coconut milk into a small pot. Add coconut milk, pouring in enough to at least cover the bottom of the pan. Use your discretion to determine how much milk you want. Cook on low, covered, stirring every few minutes to make sure it doesn't burn. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until steamy hot.
