Brown Rice Breakfast Cereal
Adapted from The Whole Grains Council, www.wholegrainscouncil.org
Whole grains have been a traditional breakfast food for centuries. Although most recipes use oats or wheat, this gives brown rice its chance in the breakfast spotlight.

|1 tsp. salt|
|1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries|

|2 1/4 cups water (for a more moist rice, add ¼ cup extra water)|
|Milk or cream|
|NOW Real Food® Maple Syrup*|
|NOW Real Food® Walnuts*|
