Left over rice porriage

okay not to toot my own horn but this is one of those spur of the moment things that makes me wonder why I didn't go to culinary school. This is a breakfest rice porriage.

1 cup left over brown rice
1 1/2 cups of water
Dried friut diced
maple syrup

This on if kinda hard to write down cause its really a whatever you feel like food. Take the rice, water and dried fruit and place in a pot. Bring to a boil, than reduce and let simmer until water is absorbed. place in a bowl and add your toppings. I prefer putting more of the fruit (dried apricotes for me) cinommon, maple syrup, parsley and walnutes on top.

The drink next to it is a refreshing way to start your day too. Its just pure fruit necter (NOT from concentrate) mixed with sparkling mineral water!
