Ingredients

  • Rice Pudding
  • 4 cups (1 L) whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) Arborio rice
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) sugar
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 1 vanilla bean cut in half or 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Topping
  • Handful of slivered almonds
  • Handful of dried apricots chopped, for garnish

Preparation

Add the milk, rice, sugar, cinnamon stick and vanilla bean to a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. Cook until rice is soft and tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes.

Serve warm or cold. Garnish with almonds and dried apricots.

Tips

Try roasting almonds before garnishing the Rice pudding !!
