Nonstick cooking spray
4 cups (1 quart) fat-free milk
¾ cup regular brown rice
¼ cup sugar or sugar substitute equivalent to ¼ cup sugar (see Tip)
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup chopped almonds, toasted (see Tip) (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 2-quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray. In the prepared casserole, combine milk, uncooked rice, sugar, and salt. Cover and bake about 2 hours or until rice is very tender, stirring occasionally (the liquid will not be completely absorbed). Let stand, covered, for 30 minutes (mixture will thicken while standing).
Serve warm. Sprinkle individual servings with cinnamon and, if desired, almonds.
