Brown Rice Cream w/ Pecorino & White Truffle Oil

February 18, 2010
Author Notes

I have recently discovered Brown Rice Cream (organic made by Erewhon) which is very similar in texture to polenta, but with a slightly nuttier flavor. Brown Rice Cream is marketed and intended as a hot breakfast cereal, but after having it for breakfast this morning w/ a little goat butter and sugar...and with the tastes still lingering in my mouth...the sky beginning to darken slightly...and my mind wandering back to Italy (yet again) I thought I could make something very interesting for lunch. Here it is, creamy, hot decadent and delicious. Just what I needed to perk me up! —coffeefoodwrite

  • Serves 2 as a main course
  • ½ cup (organic) brown rice cream (I used Erewhon)
