One of our favorite Christmas dishes is definitely rice porridge. It has similar equivalents in many cultures. It resembles, for example, German Milchreis. It is a traditional Finnish Christmas dish that in our family is served typically on Christmas Eve during lunch time. Rice porridge is super easy to prepare.
Traditionally, rice porridge consists of milk and porridge rice. For a milk-free and vegan version, you can replace cow with coconut or almond milk. The coconut milk gives the porridge a nice sweet and creamy flavour. On top of the porridge, you can add some cinnamon and almond flakes.
An old Finnish tradition is to hide a whole almond in one of the porridge mugs or bowls and whoever finds it will be lucky the next year.
2dl of porridge rice
2dl of water
1l of milk or almond milk (no water) or 400ml of coconut milk (+ 4dl water)
We wish you all a very merry Christmas!
