I found my new favorite comfort dessert: brown rice pudding. I stumbled upon this recipe over on Weelicious— I wish I had known about this site when I was making baby food for my daughter Zoe.
We always have brown rice on hand, so this is the perfect dessert to make if you’ve got a sweet tooth but no sweet treats in your kitchen. And if you have leftover brown rice, now you don’t have to waste it. Zoe absolutely loved this as a dessert and a quick afternoon snack. I even got the husband approval! I hope you enjoy this quick and healthy dessert.
Brown Rice Pudding
2 cups cooked brown rice *
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cinnamon stick (or 1/2 tsp cinnamon)
3 tbsp honey
Mix all of the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat for about ten minutes (the rice should be thick). Let the rice pudding cool in bowls and serve. This treat tastes good chilled in the fridge too. Garnish with sliced almonds and raisins for an extra healthy addition.
*I used one 10 oz Trader Joe’s Brown Rice frozen pack instead of 2 cups of rice.
