In This Recipe
- Add rice, coconut milk, water, cinnamon sticks, and salt to a pot and bring to a boil.
- Once boiling, remove approximately 1/2 cup boiling liquid and add it to a blender with the pitted dates. Blend until smooth, then return date mixture back to the pot, stirring well to mix.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring every once in a while until porridge is soft and thick, about 70-90 minutes. Stir in vanilla, and serve topped with nuts and your favorite jam.
