Rice Pudding warms the soul

I will never understand why people think it’s gross. It’s pudding with rice. What could be more awesome? I fell in love with it as a child living in Ecuador. It was quite cold in Quito, and some warm Arroz con leche (aka rice pudding) hit the spot every time. What I love about this recipe I’m about to share is that it is so dang easy. You use cooked rice!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 cups milk (I use whole milk for this treat.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup  raisins or currants
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup  sugar
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Combine cooked rice,  1 cup of milk, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir remaining 1/2 cup milk,  raisins,  and white sugar into the rice mixture; add beaten egg, and stir continuously or else the egg will cook and then you will have such grossness. Remove saucepan from heat; stir butter and vanilla extract into the pudding. EAT.
