Orange Rice & Spice Breakfast

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Roosie

An interesting and flavorful change from oatmeal. This is sort of like a healthy breakfast version of rice pudding. This can be made much easier and faster by using 2 cups cooked brown rice. You could also use soymilk/powdered soymilk for the milk/milk powder. Cook time is for cooking rice, prep time is for heating the whole mixture, although heating time will be longer if you use cold leftover rice. Recipe is credited to Julie Delaplane of Anderson, Indiana and is from the La Leche League International Cookbook "Whole Foods for the Whole Family."

OMG was this fantastic! I used rice milk and dry almond milk which resulted in a slight marzipane flavor. Instead of honey I used rice syrup, and as ladypit suggested, I put in dried cranberries. A wonderful combination - will DEFINITELY make this again!! Thanks for posting!
