Day 9: Rice Pudding

Cutest Owl Ever.
Yummy rice pudding recipe.  This is a great dessert any time of year.

Rice Pudding

1 cup cooked long grain or basmati rice
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 coconut milk
1/4 cups sugar
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup chopped unsalted pistachios

  1. In a large nonstick saute pan over medium heat, combine the cooked rice and milk.  Heat until the mixture begins to boil.  Decrease the heat to low and cook at a simmer until the mixture begins to thicken, stirring frequently (approx. 5 min.)
  2. Increase the heat to medium, add heavy cream, coconut milk, sugar, and cardamom and continue to cook until the mixture just begins to thicken again (approx. 5-10 min.).  Use a whisk to help prevent the cardamom from clumping.  Once the mixture just begins to thicken, remove from the heat and stir in the raisins and pistachios.  Transfer the mixture to individual serving dishes or a glass bowl and place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding.  Serve chilled or at room temperature.
For dinner we had festively shaped meat loafs, quinoa, and curry coriander butternut squash, YUM.
