Tea on Tuesday: Breakfast Rice Pudding

The boys and I love rice pudding for dessert. But I'm the only one who likes this version for breakfast, along with Bigelow's Spiced Chai.

My friend, Renee, gave me an actual recipe for the breakfast rice pudding , but since I don't follow recipes, this is how I make it.

Cook 1-1/2 cups of brown rice according to directions. In a separate pot, add 1-1/2 cups skim milk, 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes covered (don't let your milk scald). Stir in about a cup or so of the cooked brown rice, an additional 1/2 cup of milk, craisins or raisins and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Simmer a few more minutes until desired consistency. (When I heat it for breakfast, I usually add a bit more milk and pop it in the microwave.)

Garlic and chopped walnuts or cashews are sauteed in olive oil, then cooked green beans (or broccoli) are stirred in and served over the extra brown rice for lunch or dinner.

I'm joining Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons for tea today. If you get the chance, swing by her place to see the tea shop in her town.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

My husband was raised with rice pudding. I had never had it until I married him. I love it and yours sounds great with your tea.

Wow I love the bean and walnut idea! I had a lovely Turkish salad recently with walnuts and balsamic vinegar. Yum!

Your rice pudding sounds delicious .... And very healthy too! I just had oatmeal for breakfast - rather boring - so I think I will try your recipe - thanks for sharing!

P.s. I also had chai tea with milk - yum! Happy Tuesday!

Hi Tammy! Mmmmm, both of those look good. By the way, you had mentioned you were looking forward to the Molly Brown house post. It ran on December 2nd. If you are interested, you can look it up on the archive on my sidebar or just push "older posts."

Hope your day goes splendidly! Susan

Wow, Tammy. I'm really hungry now. I adore rice pudding and I have craisins, so may have to try it. Love the looks of your chai tea, too.

I absolutely love this gorgeous, gorgeous music. You know this type is my favourite!

Oh yes very fond memories of rice pudding just like your readers! Wish we could turn back the clock and have these delights at home again!

Happy Christmas to you!

Sorry to say have to pass on the rice pudding. Although I have to admit I have never had it, it just does not appeal to me. Something I should try sooner or later! However, the greenbeans are a winner for me! Have to make separates though, family wouldn't like the walnuts. But that's ok, I do! Have a most wonderful day. Blessings.

Love ya,
Renee
