Breakfast Rice (4 servings)
1 cup washed organic short grain brown rice
1 ¼ cups milk (2% or whole)
1 ¼ cups filtered water
½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 ½ tablespoon maple syrup (grade b) OR organic coconut sugar
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon (freshly ground is unbelievably good!)
½ cup toasted chopped almonds (you might be able to find these packaged)
½ teaspoon organic Maca Powder (optional but very good for grounding Vata Dosha)
Combine water and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil, then add rice and salt. Cover and simmer for about 35 minutes or until liquid is mostly absorbed and rice is cooked. Remove from heat and let cool for about 8 minutes.
Stir in maple syrup or coconut sugar, maca powder, and cinnamon and top with almonds.
