This “Creamy Rice” Brown Rice Farina Hot Cereal is a favorite of mine anytime of the day. I eat this for breakfast, as a snack and even after dinner at times. I use almond milk but you can make this with whatever you like including water, coconut milk and just plain milk. As you’ve noticed, I like to keep things simple and easy so here’s to a quick and simple snack anytime of the day.
1 ½ cups almond milk
¼ cup Farina
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1) Bring almond milk to a boil and add Farina, reducing heat to low. Cook for about 5-8 minutes while stirring.
2) Pour contents into bowl, add butter, honey, sprinkle cinnamon on top and serve.
The first thing I learned how to cook were eggs. Once I got this down I tried a bunch of different variations with eggs. That’s all I knew how to cook when I was a kid but it was exciting because I got to use different ingredients every time to change it up.
I’ve come a long way since then but that still happens with me with new recipes that I’ve never cooked before. I’m always looking to change a traditional recipe by mixing it up with different ingredients.
I like eggs because they are so versatile…you can cook them so many ways and you can put anything you want in them.
When I have a few people over at my house for breakfast and one person wants sunny side up, the other scrambled and someone else a frittata, I know I can make it work. Eggs are a crowd pleaser all around.
How do you like to eat your eggs?
Frittata with Tomatoes and Scallions
4 large eggs
1 cup diced scallions
4 small – medium sized tomatoes, diced
½ stick of butter
½ cup diced parsley
½ stick of butter
salt and pepper
Whisk the eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and sauté until tender. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the scallions, parsley and sauté. Pour the egg mixture over and cook for a few minutes until the eggs start to set. Reduce heat and cook until the frittata is set. Place cover on and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Using a spatula, loosen the frittata from skillet and slide the frittata onto a plate.
