I love hot cereal for breakfast. I love risotto for dinner. I love rice. I love cookies. I love almond butter. I love bananas. I love vanilla, ginger and cinnamon flavors. And this cozy bowl of Maple-Spice Ginger Cookie Breakfast Risotto combines all those favorites in one delish dish.
Easy Bowl. Even though risotto gets a reputation for being "high maintenance" as an entree dish - you have to stir and stir and stir and stir - as a breakfast bowl, risotto (arborio) rice is very easy to make since you can prepare it a bit "wetter" than you do when it is served as a savory entree. Risotto hot cereal prep is fuss free! Just as simple as stove-top oatmeal. Plus for oat-sensitive folks, easy to digest, rice-based risotto bowls are a dream come true.
The texture is so velvet-y and silky, yet still dense, filling and thick like hot cereal should be. For this recipe, I've seasoned the rice with some dreamy Ginger Cookie flavors. Call this recipe "dessert for breakfast" .. a very healthy, vegan, gluten-free breakfast. Get my recipe..
