This is a wonderful way to use up cooked rice, (any kind of rice), that is still in your refrigerator. It also makes for a great breakfast alternative instead of regular oatmeal. It is filling and warming and has a nice texture. I came up with this the other day and really liked it, and I am usually not a breakfast cereal lover.
Ingredients: (For 3-4 people)
4 cups of cooked brown rice
1/2 can of coconut milk
1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom
1 tablespoon of butter
Add the rice, the coconut milk and 1 cup of the water in the blender and blend everything. Add the ground cardamom.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the coconut cereal from the blender. Stirr often and add the rest of the water as necessary to keep it from burning. Cover with lid for 5 minutes to heat it up completely and stir several times. Add as much water as you like for desired consistency.
Serve hot in a bowl, with butter and honey.
