nonstick canola cooking spray
4 cups fat-free milk
3/4 cup regular brown rice
1/4 cup Splenda granulated
dash of salt
Ground cinnamon for garnish
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In the baking dish, combine the milk, uncooked rice, sugar, and salt. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours or until the rice is very tender, stirring occasionally. The liquid will not be totally absorbed. Remove from the oven and let stand, covered, for half an hour; mixture will thicken during this time.
Serve warm by placing in small dessert bowls; sprinkle each serving with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon and top with some almonds.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
