~Nourishing Brown Rice Pudding~



Made this for one of my health parties last night: had quite a few asking for the recipe, so here' goes!


"Nourishing Brown Rice Pudding"

~Ingredients~

Cooked Brown Rice (full pot)

Raw Unsalted Pumpkin Seeds (1/2 cup or more)

Raisins (or Dried Cranberries) (1/3 cup or more)

Cinnamon (approx. 1 heaping teaspoon)

Coconut Milk (1 can or 1/3 carton; could sub in unsweetened almond milk)

Option to Sweeten--> either Raw Agave Syrup OR Raw Honey 
***you could eat it on it's own OR use only 1/4 cup or less of sweetener



Heat Oven to 200 degrees. As heating, fill one large cooking pan (or Cornware) with brown rice.
Mix in 1/2 of coconut milk. Add in cinnamon, pumpkin seeds & raisins. Stir up altogether. 
Cook for approx. 30-40 mins, or until heated throughout. Take out of oven& mix in rest of coconut milk til desired consistency. Mix in sweetener while still a bit warm. Let stand until nice & fluffy! Enjoy :)

*optional: could serve alongside some homemade apple sauce





***To Make Good Homemade Brown Rice***

Use one bag of regular brown rice. Night before, soak in filtered water on counter. Make sure to add in 1 tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar, or fresh lemon juice (pure yogurt can sub in here too). Cover bowl so nothing gets in.
Next day (or a few hours later, if you're short on time) add in some more water & cook on stove top (Note: you can rinse off if you prefer as well). Boil water with rice on stove top, and then lower to a simmer. Make sure to keep adding in water ~if needed~as brown rice will suck up a lot of moisture. Cooks in about 40 minutes or so. Will be cooked when no longer hard & 'crunchy'.

Tip: double, triple or quadruple your brown rice! Cooked brown rice can be divided into containers once cooled, and stored in freezer for easy meals later.
