Brrr it was so cold this morning that another big warming bowl was required. I had more brown rice to use up from last night so I’m back to the brown rice porridge. This has a lovely zesty fresh taste and is a lovely warming filling brekkie. I love the flavours of orange and almond together.
Orange & Almond Brown Rice Bowl (serves one)
- 120g of cooked brown rice (from the night before is good)
- 100g water
- 100ml orange juice
- 50-100ml Almond milk
- Zest of one orange
- 25g sultanas or raisons
- 1 tsp ground almonds
- Cinnamon – liberal amount
- Ginger – liberal amount
- 5-6 roughly chopped almonds
- Flaked almonds – for topping
Put the rice, orange juice and water into a saucepan and boil gently for around 4-5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed – keep an eye on it and keep stirring it, don’t let it dry out.
Then start by adding 50ml of almond milk and the orange zest, chopped almonds, ground almonds, sultanas and spices and simmer for 8-10 minutes – keeping an eye on the liquid levels – add more of the almond milk as you stir – don’t let it get dry.
This is lovely with some flaked almonds on top – and I do sometimes add some brown sugar too.
