I shared this photo for yesterdays You Capture, and today I though I would share the recipe. It’s really simple to make, I make a batch that lasts 3-4 days so I don’t even have to think about breakfast, but I get a good healthy start to the day.
- 3/4 cups sliced dried apricots.
- A few peelings of lemon rind.
- 1 cinnamon stick.
- 3/4 cups apple or pear juice.
- 2-3 cups cooked brown rice.
- 1/3 cups almonds or walnuts, roughly chopped.
- 2-3 whole cloves.
- 1 star anise.
- 1-2 cardamom pods.
Simmer the chopped fruit, rind, cinnamon stick and any other spices you choose to use in the juice for a few minutes. Add the rice, simmer for a few more minutes. Turn off the heat and stir in the nuts and let stand for ten minutes.
Store in a container in the fridge. To serve, pour a little soy/rice milk on the rice and heat in the microwave for 90 seconds, and top with yoghurt if desired.
Easy and delicious!
