I really like making up a batch of whole grain rice at the beginning of the week so that I can use it in several different recipes throughout the week. Just 1 cup turns into 3 cups of cooked rice, which can last through a meal or two.
I recently found an awesome cookbook at a yard sale called Depression Era Recipes. In it was this great tip for using rice as a breakfast cereal. We tried it out and now the family is hooked!
- Cooked Whole Grain Rice
- Sugar (Turbinado works well on this)
Warm rice in the microwave. Then add a little butter, sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon (amount depending on your tastes), and then pour on some milk. It makes a delicious breakfast served cold as well if that is your preference.
I’m able to stock up on whole grain organic rice at Costco, so this breakfast comes out even cheaper than store-bought organic cereals! My husband grew up on surgary cereals, and it’s been hard for him to adjust to eating healthier breakfasts. This is a good compromise.
