This rice porridge breakfast makes a delicious and ready to be heated up morning porridge breakfast. Ideal for using up either white or wholegrain basmati rice.
OK, I’ll admit it, this rice porridge breakfast recipe has become my new breakfast obsession!
It all started with the overnight breakfast rice pudding recipe I brought to you previously.
After having searched the internet for a cooked rice porridge breakfast recipe that I really liked. One that could be prepared quickly. I couldn’t find any I liked!
So I came up with my own. And with both wholegrain and non-wholegrain rice lovers in mind this is the outcome.
It fits in perfectly with my morning routine. If I have this at 6am, I’m not hungry again until lunch at 12, having just a piece of fruit in between.
Hence this now becoming my latest breakfast obsession. It not only tastes fantastic but it’s a time saver too!
If you’re a porridge lover. I think you’re going to enjoy this!
