Instant Comfort- Rice Pudding (Vegan)

I have a very sweet tooth. You could never tell right? ;) Well, when I'm craving something sweet I want it RIGHT NOW! that's why I always keep a secret stash of lil' dreamers. Ssh! don't tell! But this one time last week I was craving my sugar fix, and ransacked my fridge to find cooked rice left over from lunch and a carton of soymilk, and other assorted fridge dwellers but no lil dreamers.

So I made this quick and easy rice pudding that was incredibly satisfying and much lower in calories than the ice cream I was craving.

Oh by the way, Silk's Very Vanilla soy milk? YUM!It's got a stronger vanilla flavour than their regular vanilla soy milk and its just like drinking vanilla ice cream.

Vegan Rice Pudding
Recipe source: My own

  • Cooked Rice 1 cup (I used a long grain called Sona Masoori, you could also use Basmati)
  • Ground Clove powder 1/4 tsp
  • Cardamom/Elachi- a few
  • Soy Milk/other or regular dairy Milk - 2 cups
  • Sugar- 3 tbs
  • Salt-a pinch
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tsp (if you use vanilla soy milk, you don't really need this)

  • Take all the ingredients except the vanilla essence in a saucepan and put on medium heat over the stove
  • Bring it to a boil stirring occasionally
  • Let it simmer till the mixture has thickened slightly
  • Add the vanilla essence and stir
  • Let it cool
  • Serve warm or chilled

You could also add strands of saffron, slivers of almond or raisins and cashew. Sorry the picture isn't very great. Just took one while it was still cooking in the pan. Didn't really get to pretty-fy it since I just wanted to eat it as soon as it was done. Scalded my mouth a little too but it was so worth it!
