Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Wild Rice and Apple Butter Breakfast

In these times of financial crisis and plummeting fund-age, what are we to do for a quick breakfast? Sometimes it works to throw together all the miscellaneous items in the fridge - and this was one of those times. We had:

-prepared wild rice
-homemade apple butter
-sunflower seeds (raw, unsalted)

(for this recipe, I used 1 C rice, 1/2 C apple butter, 1 diced pear, 1/4 C sunflower seeds and 1/4 C water)

Combine all in a sauce pan and heat to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer until pears are soft but not too soft. I simmered for about 8-10 minutes.

Enjoy with a partner, friend or just your awakening hopefulness for the day!
