Protein rich, low GI brown rice porridge
As we dive into the cooler the months of the year, I looooooove finding ways to warm my body up first thing and that starts with breakfast!!!! Porridge is a household fave but my personal favourite is taking my humble friend in the pantry – brown rice – and cooking a super protein rich porridge with soy milk, chia, hemp and egg . We always have @sunrice Doongara Low GI Brown Rice on hand so it’s a simple and delicious way for us to create this flavour and nutrient dense porridge. Before you knock the addition of egg… TRY IT!!! It honestly just makes your porridge have a bit of a custard moment! And because there is an amazing combination of brown rice, soy milk, egg, hemp, chia and a bit of peanut butter (if you wish) to finish you’ll be scoring a WHOPPING 23G PROTEIN in breakfast which is EPIC. Try it and let me know what you think! The recipe is below and on the blog.
