Shane’s Whole Grain Cereal

This one is easy, tasty and healthy.

  • 1 ½ cup brown rice
  • 1/2-1 cup raisins
  • ½ cup oat groats
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter (optional)
  • 4 ½ cups water
  • ½ tsp salt

Cover and simmer until water is mostly gone.

Options:

Use 1 cup white rice and ½ cup brown rice

Substitute other dried fruit in place of the raisins

Add other seasonings to taste (cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla)

You can use apple juice (or other juice) instead of water (with or without the dried fruit)

If you don’t use dried fruits reduce the water by ½ – 1 cup.

You can use virtually any whole grain or any combination thereof (wheat, rice, oats, millet, etc).

It’s 3 cups of liquid to 1 cup whole grain (except rice, which is 1 ½ to 1 ratio).

White rice also takes ½ the cooking time so if using multiple grains you can add it to the mix about half-way through the cooking process.
