Quick Rice Pudding

October 13, 2012 07:08

While at the Kickstart Intensive Conference I attended last weekend, I tried this delicious rice pudding.

I'm generally not drawn to desserts, but everyone was raving about it, so I decided to try it.  Let me just say there wasn't any left when I was done.  The chef who prepared it mentioned that making this dessert is a great way to use up leftover rice.  Hope you'll give it a try :)

Quick Rice Pudding


serves four


1 1/2 cups plain or vanilla soy milk


1 tsp. cornstarch or arrowroot


2 cups cooked brown rice


1/4 cup maple syrup


1/3 cup raisins


1/4 tsp cinnamon


1 tsp vanilla extract


1/2 tsp almond extract


Pour soy milk into a medium saucepan and stir in cornstarch or arrowroot.  Add rice, maple syrup, raisins and cinnamon and bring to a simmer over medium heat.


Cook three minutes, then remove from heat and stir in vanilla and almond extracts.  Serve hot or cold.
