Often, when I use rice for dinner, I cook twice as much rice as I will need for that meal.  Then, I freeze the leftovers in serving size portions to use for lunches.  Then, I found this recipe and decided to try it for breakfast.  I LOVED it!!!  In fact, I now eat it several times a week. 

I found this at CleanandDelicious.com by Dani Spies.  She has some really great recipes, and they are always fast and simple (gotta love that!)

BROWN RICE BREAKFAST BOWL

(click above for recipe @CleanandDelicious.com)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup COOKED brown rice
  • 1/2 cup milk (any type you like)

  • 1 tsp. maple syrup

  • 1 tsp raisins

  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 apple, diced

  • Few dashes of cinnamon

Directions: 

Combine rice and milk in a microwave safe bowl and heat in microwave for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

Stir in maple syrup and cinnamon.  Top with raisins, apple and walnuts.  Enjoy!!

This serves 1 and contains 442 calories (full nutritional analysis can be found by following the link to the recipe above).  That may seem like a lot of calories, but this keeps me full for a LONG time and it is really yummy AND it is packed with nutritious ingredients.  Please let us know what you think if you decide to give it a try!
