Vegan and gluten-free rice and pear breakfast drink

Breakfast: Vegan rice and pear breakfast drink. Gluten-free too!

Lunch: Apple-quinoa salad with avocado and that wicked Italian bread they always have at Sun Valley

Dinner: Soba noodle stirfry with mushrooms and alfalfa

As you might have noticed, I tend to be a bit boring on the breakfast foods in the week. This is a combination of 2 factors: tiredness and loving granola too much. I could eat that shiz morning, noon and night, until my kidneys gave way or something.

Anyway, I tried this for the first time this morning and was stoked with the results, despite the fact that it is hot and it was about the same temperature as the surface of the sun this morning in our apartment. It's a great way to use up rice leftover from the night before - and if you're anything like me, you'll always make too much rice.

You'll need
(Feeds 2)
2 cups leftover brown rice (pre-cooked the night before)
2 cups almond milk
2 pears
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp agave nectar or as much of any honey substitute as you like

Heat the rice and the almond milk in a pan together
Blend the rice and milk with the cinnamon, honey and pear

This gives you mad energy and is ridiculously tasty for something that is basically just a fake rice pudding drink. But then again, rice pudding is awesome!
