Brothy Rice

AGE APPROPRIATE: When on 2+ meals a day

Cooking rice in bone broth using the absorption method is a really easy way of incorporating bone broth into your little ones diet, making this rice not only gut-friendly, but delicious! The oil helps to bind to the digestible starch in the rice, creating resistant starch (an amazing prebiotic to feed the good gut-bacteria).

AGE APPROPRIATE: When on 2+ meals a day
Want to make this rice even more gut-friendly? Allow it to cool overnight in the fridge.
⁣Cooling the rice for 12-24 hours increases resistant starch - which is amazing for gut-health helping to feed the good guys (beneficial bacteria) in the gut, acting like a prebiotic.
To safely handle rice:
Place the freshly cooked ⁣rice into the fridge below 5°C as soon as possible in an airtight container.
Consume within 2-3 days if stored in an airtight container.
⁣⁣You can gently reheat the rice after the cooking and cooling process until it is just warmed!
