Fruit & Rice Cereal

Other than baby food rice cereal when they were infants, I have never fed my children rice for breakfast. They love eating rice at dinner so I figure why not try it in the morning to give them a little variety? It has been super cold here lately so what better than a nice, warm breakfast to start our day!

Tomorrow morning this is what we are going to try-

I found this recipe at Meatless Monday for Fruit & Rice Cereal:
(Makes 2 servings)

1 1/2 cups water

1/8 tsp. salt

1 cup quick-cooking brown rice

1/2 cup lowfat milk or soymilk

1/2 cup mixed dried fruit bits or raisins

3 tbsp. brown sugar

Dash of ground nutmeg

In a large saucepan bring water and the salt to the boiling point. Add rice and dried fruit.

Cover and simmer 12-14 minutes or until the rice is tender and liquid is nearly all absorbed. Stir in milk and nutmeg.

Serve with brown sugar.

My kids dad is japanese. When he first introduced me to his aunt and uncle, they shared their breakfast with me. They take a very hot scoop of rice and then crack an egg over it. It will cook a bit from the heat and steam. That's breakfast. Rice and partially cooked egg.

Wow, Audrey's egg and rice idea sounds yummy. I could eat rice 3 meals a day.
