This delicious Brown Rice Porridge recipe is brought to you on behalf of Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. Thank you for inspiring me to create this unique breakfast idea!September is National Rice Month. I thought I’d let you know in case you needed an excuse to eat more rice. Brown rice is a wholesome staple to have on hand for your healthy lifestyle. The recipe I’m bringing you today shows you how versatile brown rice is, too. Rice for breakfast? Yes!
Brown rice typically takes forever to cook, but you don’t always have forever. Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is your solution. Minute® Ready to Serve Whole Grain Brown Rice makes it a fast and easy, healthy option to have on hand. I whipped up this Dark Chocolate Brown Rice Porridge in just over 2 minutes. You can’t beat that for a fast, decadent breakfast.I’m not going to lie–this would make an equally irresistible sweet, after-dinner treat. It’s a whole grain, gluten-free dessert idea. The choice is yours.
Besides tasting like ultra-dark, chocolate bliss, I also love this because it’s made with whole, in-tact grains. So many sweet treats are made with flour, in other words grains that have been processed. We should all be trying to eating more whole, in-tact grains, and less refined and/or processed grains.
With a short ingredient list, this brown rice porridge could not be easier. You have two minutes in the morning, right? Then grab these ingredients and you can make this for breakfast. Why not start your day with some chocolate? Sounds like a good way to start your day to me.
While the toppings are optional, I highly recommend adding the sliced banana, walnut chunks, and if you’re feeling really sassy, the chocolate chips. I promise you won’t be sorry that you did. I hope you love this quick and easy brown rice porridge as much as I did!
