Good morning! How was your weekend? Mine was busy. I felt as if I never stopped running around with no time to eat or drink. Then yesterday I did not eat all day and finally ordered a pizza and ate 41/2 pieces! I think I left the other half a piece because I did not want to feel like a total glutton. Does anyone else ever do that?
Thankfully I ate so much pizza I had no room for this scrumptious rice pudding! OK, I did have room to try a bite or two but then gave the rest to my husband.
I do not know about you but whenever I make rice I always make too much, and then it sits around until I throw it away. So this week, instead of throwing it out I thought I would make rice pudding and then add a little raspberry compote to accompany it.
The recipe could not be any easier, a few ingredients and one pot.
Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding
2 cups of cooked rice
2 cups of milk
2 cups of heavy cream
1/3 cup of white sugar
1 Tablespoon of Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste
In a medium sauce pan combine all ingredients and stir, then simmer over low heat for about 35-45 minutes or until most of the liquid is gone and rice is the creamy consistency that you like.
1 pint of raspberries
4 tablespoons of sugar
3/4 cup of water
Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan and let come to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer until a nice syrup forms. Pour over rice and enjoy!
This rice pudding is rich, creamy and filled with vanilla beans. I recommend eating it warm with or without the compote, either way it is an easy and delicious way to use up leftovers and is a great dessert for a crowd or a nice comforting dessert on a Fall day.
What did you do this weekend? Did you have nice Fall weather? It was in the 90’s here and hot, the good news was that there was no humidity.
I hope that you have a beautiful day!
