I also love rice pudding and when I googled what to do with left over rice it was all about the pudding. Hmm, well, if I make it a whole less sweet, add some fruit we can then call it breakfast....right?
This is the easiest recipe to make.
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 to 1 tbsp sugar or honey (really the sweetener of your choice)
1 cup milk (any milk will do, coconut, almond, cow etc)
2 tsp heavy cream (or just add more milk but adding the cream worked better)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cornstarch
a very, very small pinch of cinnamon (you can overwhelm it if you use too much)
Add the rice, milk, sugar and cream to a small sauce pan. I have an electric stove and turned it to medium low (#4 on mine) and let it simmer. I stirred it every few minutes so that the bottom would not stick. Simmer it long enough that the rice absorbs the liquid till it is just covering it.
Add the vanilla, cinnamon and the cornstarch. Give it a little whip
It should begin to bubble and get thicker at this point.
Remove from heat
place in a bowl and add fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts or whatever you fancy
This reheats very well also. You will probably have to add more milk or cream to reheat as it will continue to absorb any liquid after you place it in the refrigerator. I add more cream and zap for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between zaps until it is heated to the temperature of my choice.
I also fried an egg using Ghee in my iron skillet. I should have cooked up some bacon to go with it but hey, you can't have everything.
