Breakfast Rice


By Rosalyn Kalmar

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 Minute
Servings: 1


  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 3 dates
  • 1/3 cup water
  • ¾ whole banana

the rice in a microwave until warm (or warm in a saucepan on the stovetop). Stir and set aside. Place the dates and water in a blender jar and process briefly. Add the banana and process until smooth. Pour over the warmed rice. Note: The Apple “Creame” recipe from below would also work well as a topping for this rice.

This morning I fixed the oatmeal-barley hot cereal. I poured "apple creame" over it. This is a simple recipe that I developed:

Apple Creame

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I used soy)
  • 1 small apple, with skin on (I used Gala)

Blend well together until smooth. Serve over hot cereal.

It really tastes yummy and like it is a very rich, high-fat cream. I add some vanilla to the creame or a touch of ground cinnamon to the cereal for delicious options.
