Swap two products for one and use arborio rice for risotto and rice pudding!
This Jools Oliver easy creamy rice pudding recipe is a stove top version of the old classic. Top it with fresh fruit, jam or add cocoa to the mix for a chocolatey version.
Ingredients120 g risotto or pudding rice
800 ml unsweetened almond milk , or regular milk, plus an extra splash
4 tablespoons maple syrup or runny honey
1 teaspoon vanilla paste , (or you can scrape out the seeds from a vanilla pod, if you have one)
1 handful of blueberries (optional)
1 ripe banana (optional)
Method1. Put the rice, milk, 200ml of water, half the maple syrup or honey and the vanilla into a large pan. Give it a good stir, then place the pan on a low heat. Cook gently for around 45 minutes, or until thick and creamy, stirring regularly. Loosen the rice pudding with an extra splash of milk before serving, if needed. Peel and slice the banana, then serve the rice pudding scattered with the blueberries and banana and the remaining maple syrup or honey drizzled
2. You can turn this into chocolate rice pudding by adding two tablespoons of quality cocoa powder in with the rest of the ingredients.
