Rice for breakfast!


2 cups uncooked brown rice
4 cups water
1/4 whey (or yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, lemon juice or vinegar)
1/4 cup butter
1-2 teaspoons sea salt or 1 teaspoon regular salt
3 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar

The night before (or earlier) mix together 2 cups uncooked brown rice, 4 cups of water and 1/4 cup whey (or one of the other options) and leave in a warm place until morning.  Bring this mixtures to a boil on the stovetop - add 1/4 cup butter & salt - allow it to simmer covered on lowest possible heat for 45 minutes (you can skip this step by using leftover rice or soak your rice the previous morning and cooking it before going to bed).  Just before rice is done, mix together 3 eggs and 1 cup milk and beat the eggs.  Add to rice mixture and turn temperature on medium to medium low; stir well.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and let it cook, stirring regularly, for about 5 minutes more (to let eggs cook).  Serve as is or add nuts & fruit :).  In our house this is enough to feed 2 medium adults, 2 medium kids, 3 small kids and 1 baby - just barely lol.
