This Italian rice-based side dish is getting a morning makeover with a festive twist. The breakfast risotto recipe features crushed gingersnap cookies, which also gives your stale or leftover Christmas cookies new life. From Jess Merchant at the food blog How Sweet It Is, the homemade gingersnap breakfast risotto has "creamy vanilla, chewy and spiced, crunchy with cookies" kind of texture.

If you are a fan of chewy oats, you will certainly enjoy this energizing meal to begin your day. To make your own, you will need arborio rice, brown sugar, crushed gingersnaps, fresh ginger, full fat coconut milk, salt, unsalted butter, vanilla paste and water. For topping you can add extra coconut cream or go with seasonal fruit like pomegranate arils or orange slices.
