There is something so warming and comforting about a bowl of Cream of Rice Cereal. Where I live it is nearly impossible to find the boxed kind but luckily it is very easy to make at home.
I like the freedom of making my own Cream of Rice Cereal because it allows me a lot more options. I can use any kind of rice I want and have experimented with many. I can make it from basmati, jasmine, arborio. It can be long, medium or short grain. It can be white, brown, black or purple rice.
There are also many options for the liquids. Usually I use almond milk but you can also use water, coconut milk, soy milk, cows milk, goat milk, or apple cider.
And lastly you can flavor it however you want. Apples and cinnamon, pumpkin spice, vanilla, apple pie spice, cinnamon raisin, chocolate chips, blueberries… you get the idea. Be creative! Rice will take on the flavor of anything you add to it!
- ¼ cup white rice
- 1 cup water or almond milk
- pinch of salt
- Grind the rice into a cornmeal-like consistency in a blender or coffee grider
- Boil the water and slowly add the rice meal
- Cook, stiring often until you reach the desired consistency
