Autumn Spiced Brown Rice Porridge

Autumn Spiced Brown Rice Porridge

With the exception of Goldilocks and The Three Bears, my interactions with porridge have been slim to none. Also, is porridge just oatmeal? What about cream of wheat? – Is that also porridge? Maybe porridge just refers to hot grains you eat in the morning . . .

Not all grains agree with everyone’s digestive system and so there are those who would like a comforting, steamy bowl of grains without the gluten – or the poops. Brown rice porridge just make sense. Soooooo if you have some time to kill and looking forward to a warm, spicy breakfast THIS is your recipe!
