Welcome to another edition of Meatless Monday!
Today we're cooking with raisins.
I resisted the urge to do yet another cookie - as much as I love raisins in cookies I decided to get a bit more adventurous than that!
You see, all this hot weather reminds me of the need for ice-cream! And well, obviously there isn't much range in a regular ice-cream store that appeals to me. So when I need that creamy rum and raisin flavour that I'm so fond of, this does the trick instead! Afterall, I'm not really a big ice-cream eater!
So, today I bring you:
Rum & Raisin Rice Porridge
To serve one you'll need:
1 cup pre-cooked brown rice
3/4 cup plant milk (or half water, depending how creamy you like it)
1/4 cup raisins
1 teaspoon rum essence (or vanilla essence)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly until heated through.
Using a stick blender, blend til porridge is desired consistency.
Option: Make a big batch and store leftovers in the fridge if you'd rather this cold.
Question of the day?
Is there any particular flavour combo that you enjoy..... but eat it in a different way than how it is usually prepared?
