Apple Cinnamon Rice Porridge

Author Notes

Did you know that brown rice is one of the world's healthiest foods? Why not try it for the most important meal of the day! I usually prepare a large pot of unsalted brown rice once a week and then use it to make variations of this delicious and nutritious brown rice breakfast porridge. There are countless ways you can enjoy it by adding dried and/or fresh fruits and nuts. Here's just one variation. —Nissrine @ Harmony à la Carte

Directions
  1. Dice half an apple into small cubes
  2. Place apples pieces, rice and water in a small pot over medium heat and bring to a boil
  3. Reduce heat to medium low, add cinnamon, nut butter, raisins, walnuts and vanilla if using it, stir to combine
