Creamy rice porridge
Delicious, nutritious and comforting. Traditional oat porridge is good too but try this one for extra food value. It is well worth the investment in a small ‘slow cooker ‘as it will be perfect at breakfast time. It keeps for 2 or 3 days in the fridge. Re-heat with a little extra soya milk or enjoy it cold with maple syrup, a chopped banana and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
2ozs (50g, generous ½ cup) brown rice
2 pints (1 litre) soya milk
Handful of dried fruits (optional)
Cook overnight in an electric slow cooker. If you do not have an electric slow cooker then just bring to the boil in a nice heavy casserole, lower heat to barely simmering, cover and cook for 2 ½ hours. You may need to add a little more soya milk. You can also pop it into a low oven for about 3 hours.
Serve with a little maple or date syrup or compote of fruit.
You can add any dried fruit you like – it is especially scrumptious with apricots or dates.
