CREAM OF RICE
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
4 cups water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Place the rice and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over
medium heat. Reduce heat to the lowest setting; cover the pan and
cook for 1 1/2 hours or until the rice is very soft and the mixture
looks like thick oatmeal when stirred.
Place the rice mixture, half at a time, in a blender and process on
low speed until smooth. Stir in the maple syrup. Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.
NOTE: You can easily double this recipe. Store unblended cooked
rice in the refrigerator. Reheat just enough for individual breakfast
portions, then blend before serving.
Almond Cream of Rice
Grind 1/4 cup almonds in the blender in short bursts at high speed
before adding the cooked rice.
Strawberry Cream of Rice
Blend in strawberries.
You can also vary the recipe by blending in currants, raisins,
blueberries or sliced peaches.
