While I can not eat this anymore I made this for a friend who was staying over, It used to be one of my staples Simple, quick, low prep, and CHEAP
1 cup dry medium grain brown rice (I always used lundberg)
8 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
Raisins, Dates, Figs, Plums, Chopped Apple/Pear, Sweet Potato, Pumpkin Puree
Almonds, Cashews, Hemp Seeds(nice crunch), Shredded coconut, various other nuts
Jams, Maple Syrup, Honey, Agave, Bit of sugar of choice
Cinnamon, Apple Pie Spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice
1. Wash, rinse, and drain the rice
2. Combine the rice, water, salt in a crock pot. If using a harder fruit like apples/pears/figs/dates. I like to add them now and let them melt into it.
3. Cook over night on low for about 8 hours (this varys depending on your cooker)
4. Add seasonings, nuts/seeds/ Sweetener, and or fruit and stir, if It is too thick I normally serve with a bit of almond milk
Note this recipe is very flexible, I have also heard of it being done with savory versions with chicken, stocks, herbs, etc. (stewed cream of chicken and rice?) I know I did a onion and leek version once, and have done it just plain then mixed in a package of BBQ Jack Fruit that turned out to be a hit with the guys next door (They had not clue it was not real meat, but you could do this with a container of shredded BBQ meat)
Feel Free to post your own combination and how it worked out for you. Would love to see other versions of this.
