1 1/2 cups any brown rice, uncooked
1 1/2 cups water
2 large eggs, whisked
1 cup any milk
1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey
18 oz tub cottage cheese
2 tbsp coconut oil or butter, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 Rinse rice well with cold water and drain. Add to a medium pot with water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Set aside.
2 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray 8 x 8 square baking dish with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl add eggs, milk, honey, cottage cheese, coconut oil, vanilla extract, salt and stir well to combine. Add pre-cooked rice and stir again. Transfer to prepared baking dish, level with spatula and bake uncovered for 60 minutes.
3 Remove from the oven and let cool for 45 – 60 minutes. Cut into 9 slices and serve hot, warm or cold with a dollop of yogurt and fruit/berries if desired. You can also dig in with a spoon right away. The bake won’t be completely set but still delicious.
