Recipe | "Microwaved Rice Bowl...for Breakfast?" by Alicia

Rice for breakfast? Sure why not?...lots of people around the world eat rice for breakfast, but typically in the US it's not always our go to. I read an article a few weeks ago about how rice with a raw egg was a staple in some parts of the world, and decided to give it a go, but in my own way. I have to say it's really delicious and the egg, mildly cooked in hot rice, gives the rice a risotto consistency. Not to mention, I think it's been pretty good for my digestion. :)

Here's how I make it for 1:

1/2 C. Brown or White Rice
1 1/2 C. Water

Microwave on high for 20 minutes. (I found brown rice takes a bit longer, with a bit more water, so you may have to experiment with the amount of water.)

When the rice is cooked, add 1 Tbsp. of butter and stir to incorporate. Then, break 1 raw egg into the hot rice and stir vigorously.

The egg gently cooks, and blends with the melted butter. Pinch of rice, pinch of pepper, dash of cayenne, dash of onion powder.

Garnish with chopped mushrooms, chives and/or green onions. Voila! Breakfast in a bowl!
