Rice Pudding

This recipe, sent in by our Insane Cook, Paula, has been sitting in my in-box for quite awhile. Time to publish it. I am not sure why Paula lists Arborio rice, specifically, but keep this in mind. Perhaps because it is a medium grain.

Rice Pudding

  1. 2 cups water
  2. 1 cup Arborio rice
  3. 3 cups vanilla soy milk
  4. 1/4 cup sugar
  5. 1 cinnamon stick
  6. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Arborio Rice:

  1. Add Fresh Berries
  2. Add Whipped topping
You will need:
  1. 1 Large bowl
  2. 1 Medium sized, ovenproof, saucepan
  3. Whisk
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized, heavy, oven-proof saucepan.
  3. Add the rice, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is nearly cooked.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the soy-milk and sugar. When the rice is cooked and still hot, add the soy-milk mixture and cinnamon stick. Cover, place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven, uncover, and remove the cinnamon stick.
  6. Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pudding will be slightly liquid; the liquid will continue to absorb into the rice and thicken as the pudding cools.
  7. Dust with cinnamon and nutmeg, if desired.
  8. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Sweet and Juicy Strawberries

A two-star for difficulty, (baking and such), Paula has kept this recipe Parve, so it can be eaten with a meat meal, by the use of soy milk. The combination of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla is a yummy one and very pleasing on the scent as well. I personally am not a fan of rice pudding, but I do know many people love this dish, and this recipe is fairly easy, chocked full of berries, and delicious to boot. Enjoy!

I mention Aborio rice simply because it's texture. It is a plumper rice and helps make this a creamy pudding. Minute rice works for this however, the pudding will be less firm.

New England rice puddings generally call for raisins. I love berries and prefer to use them.
