Rice Pudding - Comforting AND sugar free!
Borrowed picture :)
I wanted something yummy, dessert like and sugar free. I have a book called Harvest Cooking by Keith Snow. His recipes all look amazing! He has a rice pudding recipe that looks good but I wasn't in the mood to put dried cherries in mine. I also wanted to add some cinnamon. Here is my altered recipe. I hope you like it as much as I do. I'm thinking it will serve at least 6 people.
1 1/2 cups short grain rice - dry not cooked.
2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup organic raisins - Meijer has HUGE and very tasty organic raisins. MUCH better than the regular.
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract. If not using pure, use 2 teaspoons.
1/2 cup maple syrup
1. Cook rice according to directions.
2. Add in milk, cinnamon, raisins and vanilla. Cook on a medium low heat (or lower) till milk is absorbed and you have a creamy rice pudding.
3. When done add in maple syrup and stir. You can heat a bit more if it gets too cool.
I didn't do this with mine but I bet it would be amazing topped with real whipped cream and just a bit of freshly grated nutmeg. Enjoy!
