Start Your Morning With Creamy Rice Porridge & Fried Feijoas

Serve this warming breakfast bowl with kiwi berries, toasted seeds and a drizzle of honey

Depending on the size of the fruit, you may need more or less for this recipe. Alternatively, make enough for a few days and store covered in the fridge. Feijoas are very versatile and freeze well. With such a short season it is imperative to enjoy them every which way.
