Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 1 1/2 hours
- 1 can full fat coconut milk (can use almond, hemp or rice milk)
- 1 1/4 cups water
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons brown (or purple, black, or forbidden rice)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- ½ teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cardamon
- pinch of sea salt
- freshly sliced kiwi
- raw sesame seeds
- toasted coconut flakes
Put the milk, water, rice, spices, salt, in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook covered, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender but chewy and absorbs most of the liquid, about 1 1/2 hours.
You can “cheat” and use previously cooked brown rice, which can lessen cooking time. In this case, eliminate the water and just cook in the milk.
