Rice and Raisins

Do your body a favor and enjoy this inexpensive, tasty hot dish for breakfast. It’s also perfect for those allergic to gluten.

Cook rice as you normally would, but add some ground cinnamon. Dietarily, brown rice is better than white, but it takes quite a bit longer to cook, especially if you’re hungry when you start! Beware that many rice packages and recipes call for too much water. 1 1/2 parts water to 1 part rice is usually sufficient.

When rice is almost cooked through, add some raisins, so they plump as the rice finishes. Put a serving into a bowl and add milk. Add sweetener, if you must, but you may find the raisins add sufficient sweetness.
