I had some leftover jasmine rice from a couple days ago and in an effort to try to utilize food before it needs to be tossed in the trash, I decided to make into breakfast. Here is a yummy way to use your leftover rice!
2 cups leftover cooked white rice (i used jasmine)
3 cups milk (any type, i used organic soy)
1/2 cup sugar
small pinch salt
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg, optional
Combine cooked rice, milk, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and stir in the vanilla & raisins. Cook until just about all of the milk is absorbed (10-30 minutes so don’t go far from your kitchen). Stir in cinnamon and/or nutmeg. Serve warm or cold. Makes 4-6 servings.
*If you are on a time crunch you can honestly just put all the ingredients in at once. That is what I did and it turned out great! Also, I didn’t measure the rice because it was already in a saucepan in my fridge, I just eyeballed it and it looked like about the right amount. This is a pretty forgiving recipe. If there is too much milk it will just take a little longer to absorb into the rice. Make this! It’s good.
p.s. Baby Wyatt (7 weeks old!) and Momma are doing well. It’s great to be back!
