Brown Rice Porridge

Brown rice contains phytic acid that helps with detoxifying the tissues in the body. This is great for the purpose of the Hypoallergenic Diet. However, if brown rice is going to be used as the main grain in the diet for the long term, then it is best to remove the phytic acid since too much phytic acid can remove beneficial minerals from the body. Soaking the brown rice in water over night can help remove the phytic acid content. Be sure to strain the water before cooking the rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup precooked brown rice
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 pitted fresh dates, cut into pieces
  • 2 tbsp sliced raw almonds/ Hemp seeds
  • dash ground cinnamon

Method

  1. Place ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil.
  2. Stir for 4-5 minutes while boiling.
  3. Boil off to the desired consistency.
  4. Serve in a bowl sprinkled with cinnamon.
  5. For a creamy texture, use a blender to puree the rice with the water and the rice milk before placing the ingredients in the sauce pan.

Variations

Dates can be replaced with a handful of raisins, or 1/2 cup frozen or fresh mixed berries. Un-pasteurized honey can be added to achieve desired sweetness.

Dash of cinnamon can be replaced by turmeric powder (turmeric needs to be added to the pot before serving).
