I LOVE finding new uses for my leftovers! I have mentioned in the past that when I am cooking grains for something I will cook a large amount or double what I need and save the rest in the fridge. This morning my kids were up early and hungry. I decided to use some of the brown rice I had saved in the fridge to try to come up with a sweet breakfast alternative to our traditional steel cut oats (it’s been a long winter).
Hearty Breakfast Bowl
1 1/2 cups pre-cooked brown rice
1 cup dry rolled oats (quick oats)
1/2-1 cup plant-based milk
cinnamon to taste
Almond butter -to taste *optional
optional add ons: hemp seeds, chia seeds, maple syrup to taste
Chop apple and banana into small bite size pieces. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir. Allow the oats to absorb the plant milk. This dish can be served warm or cold. My kids asked for seconds! We topped ours with a scoop of almond butter! SO good!
What is your favorite way to mix up the traditional breakfast routine at your house?
