Comments on this Recipe

Delicious meal. I sprinkled cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger on top for added flavour. Divine :)

Made this today for breakfast. Good. I made a single serving with brown rice made last night and refridgerated. Made because the rice gets dry in the fridge, or maybe because it was a single serving size, I neede much more milk than called for. I didn't measure because I was constantly adding it, but I'd suggest if you're not using fresh rice, you probably will need more milk. I used pear and added goji berries and pecans and a touch of cinnamon.

Tried this recipe for breakfast this morning and it was great! I had it with a cup of green tea and it was a beautiful way to start the day!
