Hot Rice Cereal
- 2 cups leftover cooked rice
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1/4 cup raisins or dates (optional)
- dash salt
- dash cinnamon
In a medium sized saucepan combine the rice, milk, margarine, raisins or dates and salt. Add the raisins too, if you are using them. Stir the mixture over medium heat until it is heated through, and the margarine is melted. Simmer for a minute or two to thicken. Serve immediately, while it is hot.
This recipe is a great way to reheat leftover rice, especially if you don’t have a microwave. The rice will absorb some of the milk as it heats. If you like, you can pass a pitcher of cold milk or cream at the table to thin it out some. This recipe will serve 4 moderately hungry people, or 2 starving adults. It is easily doubled for more servings.
Cooked wheat or bulgur may replace the rice if desired.
