Tasty Tuesday - Brown Rice Pudding

Mmmm.....rice pudding. Not just any rice pudding, this has a healthy twist to it. Brown rice pudding.  Trust me on this one, it's yummy!




I can't recall where on the internet I found this recipe but it's one that I've been using for a while. It's made with precooked/leftover rice and once you have the rice cooked, it only takes about 25 minutes to make.

Here's the recipe with my notes added.

Brown Rice Pudding

2 cups cooked brown rice  
1 1/2 cups milk  (I use unsweetened non dairy milk)   
1/4 cup maple syrup (I have substituted brown sugar)
1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit such as cranberries or chopped apricots

Combine all ingredients in a pot and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often.

Remove from heat and add 1 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg or all spice

Serve warm.

    1. Sugar -maybe instead of raisins, some chunks of banana since you like bananas? Just a thought.

  6. Yum! I don't think I've ever had rice pudding, actually. I know, how sheltered am I??? ;) Looks good though. I love to cook and make my own recipes/modify recipes to fit my tastes.

  7. Mmmm, that does look really good and soothing on a wet and chilly day. Rice pudding is something that doesn't sound that appealing, but with the right seasoning it can be amazing.

    1. What?? Doesn't sound appealing?! I grew up eating it so maybe that's why I think it sounds yummy. I also like the option of having extra rice to give a spoonful to each of the pack as a treat on the kibble.
