Coconut rice pudding
2 cups sprouted brown rice
2-1/2 cups water
1-1/2 cups coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup palm sugar (also known as coconut sugar)
Add all the ingredients to a large pot. Bring the rice to a boil, cover with a lid and reduce heat to gentle simmer for 45 minutes. Stir every 5 minutes during the last 10 minutes of cooking process. Add water if the rice is beginning to dry out or begins to stick to the bottom of the pot, adding 1/2 cup of water at a time.
1/2 banana per person
honey (use maple syrup if vegan)
Preheat the oven to broil. Cut the banana in half and again in half lengthwise. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the banana cut side up on baking sheet. Brush with warm honey or maple syrup. Broil until golden brown on top. About 5 minutes.
