I’m a breakfast type. I need breakfast before I go out of the house – if I miss it, I’ll be hungry all day. Recently, I found my new favourite breakfast. It’s Warm Rice Pudding with Apple.
I don’t actually like rice pudding a lot. Something about the consistency is just not right for me. But this rice pudding isn’t made from real rice. It’s made with Rice Flakes.
I love it. It’s warm breakfast, which I love – but I can’t stand oatmeal and I never found a good alternative. (Yes, I can’t stand oatmeal. I know almost every food blogger loves oatmeal but I just don’t like it. I mean, I never made it with oats before, but with spelt flakes – but I suppose it’s almost the same.)
But this is definitely my alternative. I ate it almost every day of the last week. It keeps my stomach full for quite a long time which is really good because my university time table is far from perfect this semester. I was so looking forward to the weekend just for having a normal daily rhythm for some days again. I know I should be adapting to this “student thing” of eating at strange times and forgetting a daily routine – but I can’t! I’m a person that needs a daily routine. It seems boring, but that’s me – I need that. I feel strange when I lose my rhythm. I don’t like it.
But I don’t want to complain. (Well, at least not a lot.) I love studying so much that I can really put up with that. Yesterday, after my last lecture, I met with some friends, we bought take-away-coffee and sat in the park before university. It’s getting warm again! The sun was shining and we were sitting in the grass! Wow. I don’t know if it’s the sun and spring coming or something else, but it was feeling sooo good.
And now, let’s tell you the recipe of my new fabulous breakfast so that you all can enjoy the
Warm Rice Pudding with Apple
Put 125 ml of milk (I use skimmed) and 125 ml of water in a pot and let it boil.
Watch it! I’m really useless at that, I had to clean the stove so much this week. (And don’t worry, it’s not as much milk-water as in the photo, I was making two servings at once.)
When boiling, stir in about 5 tablespoons of rice flakes. Add a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of turmeric.
Let it boil for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, grate one small apple.
Yum. Who doesn’t know how I love apples? I looove apples. Put the apple in and add a pinch of ginger. Stir and then let rest for 5 minutes.
Enjoy it still warm!
Serves one. But you can also make two servings at once and put it in the fridge. Just warm it in the microwave or on the stove next morning.
Hope you like it and your bowl looks just like mine.
Empty bowl, full tummy. (By the way, I would not only eat it for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner too, haha.)
