Christmas Rice Porridge

Here in Scandinavia we eat lots and lots of rice porridge during Christmas. We tend eat so much of it that we get sick of it until next Christmas. That's why we don't tend to have it at any other time of the year.

I started having rice porridge already a few weeks ago and if you haven't jumped on the train yet here's a recipe for you to try. The traditional version isn't vegan, but I've kindly made this very delicious vegan version for you.

Traditionally we eat our rice porridge warm, but I kind of like it cold as well. You choose how you like it. Another tradition is to hide an almond into the porridge batch and the one who finds the almond either gets a gift or good luck. Others believe the person who finds the almond will get married next year.
