Cream Of Wheat Replacement

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I really want a to have a hot breakfast cereal but since I can't have cream of wheat any more I need to find a replacement. Has any one used cream of rice to replace cream of wheat? I'm looking for something that has a similar texture as cream of wheat. I never liked oatmeal because of the texture.

I was never fond of Cream of Wheat but do like Cream of Rice and think the texture is probably similar. Some people also eat Pocono Cream of Buckwheat but I haven't seen it around here.

I get the Pocono Cream of Buckwheat. I really like it when I want something warm and soothing, especially if I have been glutened.

I eat the cream of rice. It cooks up pretty quickly, and I like the texture. The one I have is cream of brown rice.

I haven't tried the cream of rice but have tried the Pocono cream of buckwheat & find it to be very similar to cream of wheat. If you use sweetener & milk it's like cream of wheat but if you use salt & butter it's like grits.

I eat the Bob's Redmill Mighty Tasty gluten-free Hot Cereal (I buy it at Whole Foods or Kroger) - I add some vanilla almond milk and a touch of sugar to it, and it's a VERY good replacement for Cream of Wheat. I actually think I like it better than cream of wheat. You can add all kinds of stuff to it...maple syrup, cinnamon, fruit, etc. Directions on the package makes a large batch - I normally either make the large batch and reheat over the next few days for breakfast, or just cut the recipe down to make just enough for one day.

I eat this too. I have also tried out the savory recipes on the box and they were good also.

By the way, the Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal can also be substituted for cornmeal when making corn muffins, if you like a sandier texture (which I do). And it is mighty tasty as a hot cereal, especially with butter and brown sugar. But for texture, Cream of Rice is closest to Cream of Wheat, but I'm not sure I'd trust Nabisco's Cream of Rice not to be cross-contaminated with other things they make.

Try cream of buckwheat. It tastes kinda funky to me, but my son (Gluten-free Casein-free diet) loves it.

cream of rice, millet grits (bob's red mill).

oatmeal can be made in many, many different textures. steel cut oats are a more similar texture to cream of wheat (I'd think?), and quick cook oats are the ... softest? least textured? something like that. rolled oats are in between.

There are some threads about grit recipes on the forum somewhere. Grits with olive oil, salt and pepper or oats with the same, vs. sugary stuff.

    • I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc....now that has me stressed. Like I have a limited budget but if I get them on these sales I save money for the next few months buying in bulk on sale......but then the stress of borrowing money and doing so....which purchases to make, what saves me the most in the long run, will it last me til the next sale...balancing all this out with a limited budget when your bad with numbers is scary/frustrating. Damnest thing is I do not care for the specials on technology. vanity items, etc. I am just focusing on essentials and stuff I use or would use daily to improve my life and make savings in the long run. I think the only actual 2 items I am looking at is a charm for my mother for Christmas and a water filtration system for my kitchen. Other then that it is all food, supplements, spices, and medications lol.

      OH another funny thought due to lack of orders, I am opting to go help cook a community dinner at a church for over 450 people. I already brought/opted in to bring my own spices, starches, etc for the areas to keep it safe for my stations and will be helping with the turkeys and serving up a bunch of gluten free/corn free desserts so I will be in a safe element for my health risk. Got 16 turkeys, 1 food service pan of gluten free pear cobbler, 1 pan of pumpkin chocolate brownies gluten free, pumpkin pies to pull out and do starting in the morning.
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/supermarket-products#wraps Starbuck's also had wrap sandwiches in London and this was the company they used.  Warburton's bread and wraps put everything in the US to shame.  The wraps are moist, delicious and do not SPLIT!  I could actually consider a move to the the UK just to have access to this bread.  I will say it again.....the UK has the BEST gluten-free bread I have ever had.  If I could afford shipping a cooler of the stuff to the US, I would.  Really miss my good bread.  And now I see they have crumpets........ Costa coffee is great...never had a problem with it.
    • Why wouldn't it be gluten-free?  whiskey is gluten-free. Wine is gluten-free.  
    • Have you been tested for a stomach ulcer?  That's what the pain sounds like to me.  You can also get pain in your stomach from too much gas.  Another possibility is GERD.
    • Well, you can always trial the gluten-free diet, but do it for at least six months.  Act exactly as if you had celiac disease.  Worry about cross contamination and learn to read labels.   My own hubby did this per the very poor advice from two medical doctors 16 years ago (and we had good insurance!).  The diet worked.  After a year of learning, he has faithfully remained gluten-free.  So, it can be done.  He will say that I have had it much easier with a firm diagnosis.  However, it is not always possible to get that diagnosis.  The bottom line is to protect your health!
