I am not sure of whether to call this brown rice pumpkin soup or brown rice pumpkin porridge. I made this for my little girl when she was having diarrhea and vomit since everything went into her mouth, it came right out. I thought if I pureed the porridge, it would go down easier on her. But guess what? She refused to eat it, not even a taste test. The only thing she would eat was Popsicle and of course she could have as many as she wanted since that was the only thing she would eat and won't throw up.
So, I was the one that finished this soup. I loved it actually, it was sweet and tasted like brown rice. Now I know what was the difference between white rice porridge and brown rice porridge. Brown rice taste really stood out. This is suitable for baby, toddler or older people as it's very nutritious and easy to swallow.
Serving for one:
One handful of brown rice, washed
Few pieces of cut pumpkin, cut into tiny pieces
