Sweet Rice Porridge

Leftover rice makes a fast, filling breakfast. With the help of the egg yolk and the banana, you’ll get just enough protein and sugars. This recipe is not too different from Rice Pudding, which is served as a dessert. We made it a bit lighter here so you can start your day with a treat.
