Secrets For Cream Of Rice

7 posts in this topic

Its been a little over 6 weeks since Ive been gluten-free and Ive been eating the same things over and over because I know they are safe. Well its time for me to venture out and try new things. I bought me some cream of rice. I know its similar to oatmeal and needs some doctoring up to make it tasty. Well I doctored it up with some fresh blueberries and a bit of maple syrup. Its still gross! Maybe Im just not a cream of rice person. I also got me some granola to eat and OMGosh its so good but expensive. Our budget will not allow me to buy it often but wow its nummy! Anything you can tell me to try will be greatly appreciated it. Im willing to try anything.

We are not gluten-free in our house (yet), but I do a lot of whole and clean cooking, perhaps you could try a simple home made 'sweet rice' instead of processed or packaged 'cream of rice.'

I always make extra rice, so leftover rice is aplenty in the fridge.

I divy up the (cooked white or brown) rice into small plastic containers about 1/2 cup each.

Sprinkle with cinnamon

drizzle honey or other sweetner

add blueberries or strawberries or other fruit

(my husband puts pineapple and nuts)

sliver or dab of butter if you can have it.

splash of milk product (we use soy...vanilla soy or almond would be great!)

and store in the fridge.

Its traditionally a dessert, but I let my son warm it up for breakfast as a warm rice cereal.

That sounds good! Im definitely going to try that. I can't do white rice, it makes me sick. But I love brown rice and just bought myself a rice cooker yesterday.

I wouldn't do blueberries and syrup together on cream of rice. My best recommendation would be some crumbled bacon and syrup together. I also like to stir in a jar of baby food. I also grew up on grits and/or mush for breakfast so maybe it's just an acquired thing eating something of that texture.

I love cream of rice with butter and pepper, just like grits! Or sprinkle a little cheese.

If you want it sweet, I like it with butter and honey.

I also make it with milk or half and half, then it's really creamy, kind of like cream of wheat.

Make sure your cream of rice cereal isn't actually rancid. I've gotten some bitter, rancid rice cereal on occasion. If yours is bitter, it's gone bad.

I am sad...you make me want to cook up a batch, but I am in the first weeks of grain-free living. {sniffle} :ph34r:

I'm a lousy cook, but I wanted to make rice pudding once. I don't like raisins, but I had some organic blueberries. What I did was make the rice, add the blueberries, then I stirred in some ICE CREAM, vanilla of course. Then I baked it. It came out really good! It was so easy I would do it again, except I found out I am still so salicylate senstive that I can't eat any kind of berries. :(

I never liked cream of anything cereals, but maybe the blueberries and ice cream thing would make yours more tasty? (Although I like the bacon idea a lot.)
