Brown Rice Hot Cereal

Brown Rice Hot Cereal

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup brown rice - cooked
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 Tablespoons dried blueberries other dried fruit
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
This hot cereal reminded me of healthy rice pudding. It was very good. I may have liked it more with fluffier white rice, but that's the price you pay when you try to fit whole grains into your morning. The dried blueberries were a nice touch. They plumped and softened after the long simmer and made a real impact. The egg created a custard feel that was interesting. However, the egg did little to thicken the final product. I found myself having to simmer at a slightly higher heat for 10 additional minutes to get the consistency I wanted. All in all, I was pretty pleased with this breakfast.

How To Make Brown Rice Hot Cereal

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the rice, milk, dried fruit, cinnamon and honey. When the mixture starts to bubble, reduce the heat to low simmer for 20 minutes.

In small bowl or cup, beat the egg. Stir in a teaspoon of the hot mixture from the stove. Continue to slowly stir in 4 or 5 more teaspoons of the hot mixture until the egg is nearly too hot to touch. Add the egg to the stove top mixture.

Stir the vanilla and butter into the hot mixture. Continue to cook for 3 or 4 more minute or until thickened to your liking.

Serve warm.

Cooking Note:
Don't have leftover rice? Just whip up a batch. Bring 2 and 1/4 cups water and 1 cup brown rice to a boil in a sauce pan. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer for 20 minutes and then let it rest for 10 minutes off the heat. Boom! You got rice!

Brown Rice Hot Cereal With Blueberries

A comforting cross between oatmeal and rice pudding. The egg adds a light custard flavor, but can be skipped if desired. This is a fun recipe to experiment with.

Do I NEED to add the egg? It seems out of place.

I've recently been using a slow cooker recipe for my morning oatmeal which I do nearly every day. I put it in before bed and when I wake up six or seven hours later, the kitchen smells yummy and hot cereal is ready for eats. Can the brown rice cereal be set up in similar way. Just love the time it saves me. Thanks.

I doesn't need the butter at all. It's perfectly good without it. A very nice recipe. Thanks.

This cereal is amazing. It really does taste like rice pudding. I omitted the honey and butter and used dried dates. The dates give it a nice sweetness. Excellent recipe!

Very good except I used less honey and no butter and frozen blackberries.

One of my favorite hot cereal recipes -- easy and very filling. I recommend using dried cranberries and walnuts added in, or dried cherries and almonds. De-lish!

Easy & very yummy. I made it with dried cherries and used nutmeg instead of the cinnamon. I am going to try and use egg substitute next time.
