Esalen Brown Rice Breakfast Cereal

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This recipe is from the Esalen cookbook. I have made it several times. You can use soy, rice or almond milk if you have milk allergies. It keeps you full all morning. I like it with a dollop of yogurt on top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cooked brown rice and all other ingredients in a bowl or large Tupperware. Stir to combine.
  2. Put in the fridge for 12 hours or overnight (this allows the rice, fruit and nuts to soak up the milk and spices).
  3. Warm and serve. This is good with a dollop of yogurt!

Do NOT make this recipe with brown Minute Rice....mine turned out terrible. I'll admit this is likely a result of my laziness on this one...sorry

Wonderful!! I'm trying to find some easy whole grain breakfast meals and this was delicious!! I made extra brown rice and made enough for 3 mornings. I used 2% milk only because I had nothing else, but I'd like to try it with rice milk next. I loved the crunch of the cashews and the rich scent of vanilla. Thanks!

A wonderful 'bircher' style breakfast for anyone unable to have wheat or gluten. I used gluten-free soy milk and served for breakfast topped with a lactose/gluten free vanilla yogurt . This recipe came together quickly. Next time I cook rice for dinner and there are left-overs....I'll be making this breakfast again. I think that the recipe should say 2 cups of cooked brown rice. I made a 1/2 batch and really was plenty for 3 or 4 serves. Photo also to be posted *Reviewed during PAC Spring '08*
