Recipe by Daniel Myers
I used brown rice for this and the result was a thick "pudding" with a consistency almost like oatmeal. I also added a dash of cinnamon to give its flavor a bit of a boost. Note that this recipe contains no eggs or dairy products and is therefore suitable for lenten feasts.
1 cup rice (uncooked)
1 cup almond milk
1/8 cup sugar
1/8 cup honey
Cook rice and let cool. Mix with almond milk, sugar and honey. Heat to a simmer, and serve.
