18 Reviews For "Brown Rice Farina"

  1. Great for Gluten-Free Breakfast

    by Bella on 03 Thu,2017


    This stuff is great. Trying to eat better at breakfast when you're allergic to eggs, wheat and dairy is truly challenging. This does the trick. Either alone with a little honey or mixed in with lentils, olive oil and cumin for a more power-packed breakfast.

  2. New Favorite Hot Cereal

    by Somebunniesloveme on 03 Fri,2016


    I bought this because I am a hot cereal fan. I looked at the back of the bag and there was a recipe that said "got your goat", it intrigued me. It called for goat cheese. I thought how odd. Since I had some I tried it. DELICIOUS!!!
    What a combination.


    by GrammaKathie on 01 Sun,2016


    My husband bought this cereal for me to try on a whim. I'm so happy he did! I've been a huge Steel Cut Oats fan for years. I cook the entire package with 12 cups of water and 1/2 tsp of salt in my crockpot; set it for 3 hours on high and forget about it....I freeze it in cottage cheese containers and have a hot breakfast even on work days.....This farina is now my other favorite....absolutely LOVE IT! Because it's cut and not ground, the rice grains retain their nutty, crunchy texture...I searched in 5 local stores and could not find it....I AM SOOO HAPPY TO FIND IT ONLINE.....I'LL NEVER RUN OUT AGAIN.....THANKS BOB!!!

  4. excellent product and delicious taste

    by seaandsky on 01 Thu,2016


    My husband and I like to have this in the morning. I make the Brown Rice Farina according to package directions. Once I place the farina in the bowl, I add one slice of Harvarti cheese and mix it into the farina till it melts. After that my husband adds salt, pepper and butter. I make mine with butter and brown sugar. We both have different tastes but we love this on a Winter morning.

  5. Delicious and Versatile

    by Destiny Bee on 11 Fri,2014

    cook up a full batch (3 c water/1 c rice/1/2 tsp salt) to keep extra in the fridge for heating up throughout the week.

    To serve, I like using 3/4 cooked rice and stirring in 1/4 c of ground flaxseed, 1 tb grass-fed butter, 1/2 c cream (or extra hot water), and (optionally) a good 1 tb of raw honey (or grade B maple syrup). Sometimes I leave out the sweetener though and just enjoy the savory nature of this with good butter and salt.

    Flaxseed is a healing food for me, and this is a great way for me to get it into my diet. But here's the thing: the addition of the flaxseed kicks this cereal into another stratosphere. It's what truly makes this a complete, nourishing, delicious meal for me.

  6. Loved this

    by Jo on 06 Mon,2014

    I bought this on a whim because I love rice. I cooked it in my rice cooker and added organic butter and honey, it was delicious, wish I had made more.

  7. Help! 3 Questions for fans who love this

    by Philly Phoodie on 05 Fri,2013

    Help--I have three questions for those who love this, before I buy:
    1) I do NOT like brown rice. Does it taste more like brown rice or white rice?
    2) I love Nabisco Cream of Rice cereal, and can't find it anymore and love Bob's Red Mill Products...does this compare to Cream of Rice?
    3) I do NOT like cream of wheat, either :( is it reminiscent of cream of wheat in texture or taste?

  8. Mmmm Mmmm Good!

    by HealthyEatingMo on 05 Tue,2013

    Made this for the first time today and I am in love! I didn't use water as the cooking directions recommended. I used almond and coconut milk, added some vanilla, brown sugar and coconut flakes... it was AMAZING!

  9. First try a mess in microwave

    by jan sugar free on 09 Sun,2011

    I ate this for breakfast the first time today, and was very disappointed. It over flowed all over my microwave, making a gooey mess. Even that aside, I wasn't crazy about the taste. I much prefer my Red Mill organic creamy buckwheat cereal.

  10. This product is AWESOME

    by D on 09 Tue,2011

    I bought this product for the first time and I was a little nervous, I thought it would be like nasty Cream of Wheat. I made it for breakfast one morning and added a little milk, brown sugar and bananas and the taste blew me away. This product will always be in my cabinet!!!

  11. Our favorite!

    by Healthy Mama on 09 Sun,2011

    This is one of our family's favorite breakfasts ever! From the time our little ones have been able to start solid foods, they have loved this cereal - and so do we. It cooks up quickly, is definitely filling, and a great source of grains and iron. We've been buying it by the retail bags, but with three kids now, we're getting a 25lb bag the next time around!!

  12. Really Good!

    by Amanda the Bake on 06 Thu,2011

    I make this as a dessert. I make it into a quick rice pudding by cooking with milk instead of water and adding brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and rasins. My whole family loves it with a scoop of ice cream or a splash of cream!

  13. Careful preparation needed by microwave

    by Jonathan on 05 Thu,2011

    Having recently gone on a gluten free diet, one of the things that I've greatly missed is hot breakfast cereals.

    When I saw this product, knowing the high quality of Bob's RM product, I immediately wanted to check it out, particularly because microwave preparation instructions are included.

    While the cereal is very good (I add brown sugar), I probably still don't have a complete idea of what it should be like since I have yet to get it to cook properly. Following the instructions to microwave with a lid for 3 to 5 minutes, I have yet to find a dish large enough to prevent the cereal from overflowing into a gooey, sticky mess, even if it's only a cooked for 2 minutes while being stirred at the 1 minute mark or if it's a half serving. It always escapes whatever container it's placed in, quite amazingly, in fact. It still tastes good, but the microwave instructions are definitely wrong. I have a decent sized microwave (physically, though I'd describe it as underpowered), and a container large enough for the job would not fit in it.

  14. Awesome morning treat

    by Amy Mom of 5 on 04 Wed,2011

    This is great with coconut milk and ghee. Sometimes we stir in some Agave or maple syrup and cinnamon. My 15 month old absolutely loves this cereal. We have found that it doesn't take long on the stovetop and it is better than the microwave option. Do not overcook. Any left overs we just store and reheat the next day with some coconut or almond milk on the stove. ENJOY!

  15. Favorite breakfast

    by Nicole on 11 Thu,2010

    I eat this for breakfast and sometimes as a late night snack. I make it on the stove with milk but take it off the stove before it gets too thick otherwise it will become really solid in the bowl as opposed to a wonderful creaminess. I eat this with maple syrup and sometimes with fresh or warm berries. I like this better than cream of wheat and definitely better than a white rice farina I've tried

  16. Great Morning, Noon and Night.

    by the Tilghman St on 11 Thu,2010

    I love this cereal. I first bought it for a fast, hot breakfast option for fall and winter. It's great, because you can change it to suit your mood. I like it best with pumpkin butter, apricot butter or cinnamon and agave syrup. The only trouble I have with it is that it tends to cook over in my microwave, but I'm not convinced it isn't the shape of the bowl I use.

  17. Comfort food

    by ConKay on 06 Tue,2010

    I needed something easily digested and my sister recommended this to me . I like the texture and taste. I add cinnamon to mine.

  18. Cream of Wheat used to be ...

    by Anita on 01 Sat,2010

    Cream of Wheat used to be my favorite breakfast. I'm eating healthier and gluten free now and I must say the brown rice farina beats cream of wheat hands down. Made with some cinnamon, agave nectar and soy creamer it's sooooo good!
