Rice Porridge Recipe

Rice Porridge (Slow Cooker or Instant Pot)

GFCF/ Nut-Free, Egg-Free

Can be made egg-free by eliminating egg – while it will not be quite as thick, it’s still delicious. For an elimination diet and other egg-free diets, avoid the eggs.

For Low FODMAPs, use maple syrup (not honey).

This is similar to rice pudding but less sweet and great for breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cup brown rice
  • 1 ½ cups (1 can) coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 beaten egg 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2-3 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup

Slow Cooker Directions

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours.  Set a timer at night, and breakfast will be ready when you wake up.  

Instant Pot Directions

Place all ingredients in Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 22 minutes.  Let it come down from pressure naturally for 10 minutes.  

If you don’t have or want to use a slow cooker or Instant Pot, you can combine all of the ingredients in a pot and simmer for 50 minutes or until done.
