Wild Rice Porridge with Cardamom, Pecan, and Pear

If you keep a few cups of cooked wild rice in your refrigerator, this is a quick and satisfying breakfast alternative to oatmeal. Pear and cardamom are a classic flavor combo, but really, once you’ve mastered the basic formula here, this porridge is endlessly adaptable. Try swapping in apples, apricots, or blueberries for the pears; almonds for the pecans; maple syrup for the honey.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the rice, cream, honey, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cream has reduced slightly and the mixture is hot, about 7 minutes.
  2. 2Add the pears (or other dried fruit), pecans, and cardamom, stir to combine, and cook until the pears have softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with the cinnamon, stir to combine, and spoon into bowls. For a little extra richness, drizzle another tablespoon of cream and a little honey on top.
