Healthy Nutella Rice

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

Nutella - healthy??!? Yes, if you make it yourself with natural ingredients! Cooking time is a guess because I found that cooking time for brown rice varies. Prep time includes soaking time. Addition: Rita's review made me aware of the fact that I forgot to mention that you have to roast the hazelnuts before grinding them into a paste!

I used brown basmati rice. I`m sorry but we just didn`t enjoy this. Sorry! Made for ZWT #8
