Enjoy my recipe of today, guaranteed gluten free, and perfect to take along for a picnic outside:
Honey Sweetened Milk Rice & Berries
What to Buy
50 g milk rice
1 small cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 organic lemon (you’ll need skin and juice)
30 ml agave syrup or acacia honey
300 ml rice milk
175 g seasonal berries
How to Make it
Simmer the rice in 300 ml rice milk, seasoned witha thin slice of lemon zest and the cinnamon stick. This takes up to 25 minutes, until the rice is soft and all liquid absorbed. The texture should be similar to a good risotto, soft and still a little bit runny. remove the cinnamon stick and the lemon zest.
Add some of the honey or agave syrup when the rice is already cooked and and removed from the stove.
Marinate the berries with some honey and a dash of fresh pressed lemon juice.
Ideally serve this delicious rice warm, sprinkled with a little bit of cinnamon powder and with the cold berries on the side.
Chef Gabi’s Tip
You can also take cows milk or soy milk for this recipe.
Rice is gluten free. A good choice even for baking. Cakes, pan cakes, muffins, most recipes can be used for a gluten free version with rice flour. I personally am not often craving sweet food, but this milk rice I sometimes love to eat! Reminds me of a summer day at home in Germany.
Have a blessed and healthy weekend!
