My son loves this hot cereal more than any other! It is nutritious, simple and satisfying no matter what your age, and as fast as a bowl of "instant" oatmeal. Perfect for the morning after you make a meal with leftover rice, or make up a big batch of rice for a whole week full of warm, delicious breakfasts! Whole grains like rice keep well in the fridge for up to one week.
Hot Rice Cereal
1 serving (multiply as needed for larger families)
1 cup of cooked rice
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup whole milk
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
In a small saucepan, heat the butter over low heat until melted. Stir in the rice, then add the milk and heat 3-4 minutes until hot but not bubbling or scorching. Stir in maple syrup, raisins, cinnamon and salt and serve immediately.
Vegan: Substitute coconut oil for the butter and almond or coconut milk for the whole milk.
