Today started something like this: Sweet Peanut Butter Coconut Rice [Vegan/Gluten Free](Yep.  That’s Snow.)

Which reminded me of this sweet, warm breakfast I made last weekend.  I actually had a dream about this dish Saturday night.  And when I did, I woke up, put some rice on to soak, and Sunday morning I made it.  And it was delicious.

It may not be the prettiest dish ever, but it definitely fills the ‘missing oatmeal as a warm breakfast option’ hole in my life.

When I eat it I am instantly warm inside.  Perfect winter breakfast food.  Sweet Peanut Butter Coconut Rice [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Sweet Peanut Butter Coconut Rice [Vegan/Gluten Free]

Makes 4 – 5 small breakfast-size servings

  • 1 cup brown rice, soaked at least 8 hours (or overnight)
  • 1/2 can (7 oz) of full fat coconut milk, shake well before opening
  • water – to equal 2 cups (when added to the coconut milk)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt

Let’s Make It:

  1. Drain brown rice and rinse well
  2. Add 1/2 a can of coconut milk to a measuring cup.  Add water until the total liquid is 2 cups
  3. Add the peanut butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt to the measuring cup and stir well
  4. Add the rice to your rice cooker (or pot), add the liquid-mixture on top, stir once and cook according to your rice cookers directions, or as you normally do on the stove
  5. When finished, a brown sauce will be on the rice.  It’ll be a bit runny when the cooker first finishes, but will thicken as it cools
  6. Serve warm with raisins or nuts on top
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container

Inspired by this (equally awesome) savory recipe. (And a great way to use the other half of the coconut milk)
