Brown Rice Soup – Milky yet Milk Free

Brown Rice Drink

I prepare this soup by borrowing the skills of making drinks from soy beans, sesames, almonds, etc. Likewise, the ingredients used are also simple including only brown rice, water and some seasonings. So I would have no objection if you call this a drink than a soup. Anyway, a cup of it has warmed me through and that extra warmth seems to have lasted for hours which is especially significant during this chilling temperature.

When I first treated husband and father with this soup, they both asked separately ‘What is this? …. tastes good.’ They eat rice almost every day, yet without recognizing that it is a soup from rice. So, if brown rice appears to be a bit rubbery to you even after cooked, this should comes as a tasty alternative yet enabling you to enjoy the many nutrients it offers.

  • Benefits of Brown Rice
  • The more I read, the more I am impressed that brown rice is good for health. And I am going to highlight a few below, which means, yes, I am persuading you to try this soup.
  • Women who eat whole grains weigh less (source: The World’s Healthiest Foods )
  • Help prevent cancer and heart disease (source: Pregnancy Weekly )
  • Help prevent diabetes (source: Harvard School of Public Health and Scientistlive )
  • If not Brown Rice
  • In addition to the milky-looking brown rice soup, as you can see from the top picture, I have made another one in red behind it. But there is no coloring, may I assure you … I just also soak some red rice at the same time, and cook another few cups of soup from it, which, though without any spice added, is slightly more fragrant if not creamier than the milky one.
