A delicious slow-cooked breakfast porridge using short-grain brown rice. This porridge is perfect for a myriad of toppings.



½ cup short grain brown rice

2 cups whole milk

1 cup water

1 tablespoon honey

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt


  • Rinse rice and combine in a pot with the milk, water, honey, vanilla, and salt. Cover, bring to a simmer, reduce the heat so the rice is just barely simmering. Let cook until the rice is tender and milk has mostly absorbed; 45 to 55 minutes.
  • Divide the porridge into two bowls and top with your favorite toppings: heavy cream, sweetener, toasted nuts/seeds, jams, and/or nut butters.


Tips + Tricks: Try and make sure you pick up short-grain brown rice. The extra bit of starch helps thicken and create a solid porridge texture.
