Overnight Oatmeal & Rice Kheer

Last night after dinner, I had a little over 4 tablespoons of White Basmati Rice (about 1/8 cup dry) left over. No one wanted to finish this little bit off and I detest throwing good food away. On a whim, I decided to make an overnight oatmeal with rice which made for a delicious breakfast this morning. 

Prep Time: < 5 min


  1. 1/8 cup Cooked White Basmati Rice
  2. 1/4 cup Old-Fashioned (Rolled) Oats
  3. 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  4. 1 tbsp Dried Coconut Flakes
  5. 2 Medjool dates (peeled, pitted, diced)
  6. 1 cup Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk (I used Almond)
  7. 1/2 tsp Ground Green Cardamom Seed
  8. Maple Syrup (optional, to taste).
Mix all ingredients in a lidded container and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, mix well, heat for about 2-3 min on high in a microwave, if desired. Drizzle with a little honey or maple syrup and enjoy!
