Mediterranean Style Rice Pudding


Three quarters of a cup rice

One and a half cups water

Two cups two percent milk

Two cups cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 t vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon sweet cinnamon

More for Dusting

Whipped Cream if Desired for Garnish or Fresh Berries


1) In a large saucepan place the water, rice and salt. Bring to a boil and reduce then to a simmer at medium heat.

2) In a small bowl mix the milk, cream and dusting of cinnamon. Whisk. Gradually pour in from a height and continue stirring for thirty to forty minutes until the consistency looks like porridge. Do not over cook and be sure to stir throughout the process so that the rice becomes a porridge.

3) Pour the rice pudding into some pretty custard cups or small bowls. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let cool so that pudding will solidify. Let come to room temp before covering.

4) Once chilled dust with the cinnamon and garnish with whipped cream and/or berries. (You may use all milk if watching fat in the dessert).
