Brown Rice Breakfast Porridge

Morning and happy Saturday to you!

What do you have planned for today? I’m headed to meet a workout buddy at the gym, check out the J CREW bridal warehouse sale and then going to Northern VA for a bachelorette party. I’m quite certain it’s going to be a fun day full of shenanigans. And, just in case you’re wondering, I’m going to the bridal warehouse sale to look for dresses to wear to other people’s weddings, not my own. Still waiting on that one…

So here’s the important issue at hand – a delicious breakfast recipe I created this morning with left over brown rice and a banana. It’s ridiculously delicious!


Brown Rice Breakfast Bowl

  • 1/2 cup cooked short grain brown rice
  • 1 T rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 1/2 ripe banana, sliced
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • shake of cinnamon

Place all ingredients in a small pot on medium heat. Heat for 8-10 minutes while stirring frequently until most of the liquid is absorbed and the mixture becomes creamy. Serve with nut butter or nuts.

Brown rice might not be as voluminous as a big bowl of oats, but it’s creamy, extra chewy and has a nice sweet flavor that pairs well with the banana and almond milk. It’s also quite filling – just ask my little owl friend above who has a big belly full of it. 🙂

If you’re looking to switch up your breakfast (or to use up left over brown rice), I highly recommend trying this brown rice breakfast bowl.

      That “rice” bowl looks yummy! What did I have planned for today? . . . hang with the family. Finally take down our Christmas lights and reach a new running milestone! Great day all around!

      Did you get that owl from Anthropologie? Too cute…just like you! I love brown rice, but I’ve never had it for breakfast. Brilliant! Thanks for sharing, sweet girl! I hope you are having a splendid Saturday night. Take time to relax and rejuvenate tomorrow. Hugs from Austin!

      I’ve always said I could eat brown rice for three meals – and now I get to prove it! I can’t wait to try it!
