My mom used to serve a version of this for breakfast—cooked with milk, sugar, and a hint of cinnamon. It is still one of my favorite breakfasts, although now I make a more wholesome version with almond milk and chopped dates.

Recipe from Forks Over Knives – The Cookbook.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon ground cloves, to taste
  • 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tart apple (such as Granny Smith), cored and chopped
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, toasted

Instructions

  1. Combine the rice, almond milk, cinnamon stick, cloves, and dates in a medium saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-low heat for 12 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
  2. Remove the cinnamon stick. Add the apple, raisins, and salt and mix.
  3. Serve garnished with the toasted almonds.
