Pine nuts, rice, salt, and water.

Directions (for 1 serving)
Soak ⅓ cup of short-grain rice in cold water for 1-2 hours.
Rinse and drain and put it into a blender.
Add 2 tbs pine nuts (with the tips removed) and 2 cups of water to the blender.
Blend the mixture finely for about 3 minutes, until it turns into a milky white liquid.
Pour the liquid into a heavy bottomed pot.

Cook it over medium high heat. Keep stirring with a wooden spoon.
It’ll get thicker in about 3 minutes. Add ½ ts of kosher salt, lower the heat to medium low, and stir for 5 more minutes. The porridge will get thinner and a little soupy.

Transfer the finished porridge to a serving bowl and serve warm.
