Hot breakfast please!

Eat hot cereal today it will keep you warm all day! :)

During the winter I always crave for a warm breakfast. I toast my bread, sip tea, and make eggs or oatmeal.  I recently started making “Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal” (Red Mill) again. It’s a very nutritious, gluten free cereal made out of whole grain brown rice, corn, sorghum and buckwheat.

To me, the perfect consistency for this hot cereal is slightly runny and not too stiff. It’s tempting to pour in more cereal because it always looks way to thin at first. I made this mistake many times and had to keep adding milk to get it back to normal. Trust me it thickens, even while it’s sitting in your bowl waiting to be decorated.

In case you like it a little thicker, just add a little more…..and I mean….a little….unless you need some cement to fill a hole in your wall right after breakfast ;)

Per person:

Bring 1 cup milk (or soy) to a boil and stir in 1/4 cup of cereal. Turn the heat very low, continue to stir until milk and cereal are blended. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I served it with raw cashews, shredded coconut, raisins and sweetened it with maple syrup. You can add some fruit, throw in your favorite nuts and use the sweetener of your choice.
