Leftover brown rice is cooked together with milk, honey, and dried blueberries for a healthy, new twist on breakfast. Experiment with it to make it your own, you can try using any mixture of dried fruit instead of the blueberries.
- 1 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 cup 2% low-fat milk
- 2 tablespoons dried blueberries
- 1 dash cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 egg
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Combine the cooked brown rice, milk, blueberries, cinnamon, and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Beat the egg in a small bowl. Temper the egg by whisking in some of the hot rice, a tablespoon at a time until you have incorporated about 6 tablespoons. Stir the egg into the rice along with the vanilla and butter, and continue cooking over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken.
