    Creamy Rice Pudding

    Here’s a healthy spin on me dear old Mom’s classic dessert. Short-grain rice gives the pudding a creamy texture.

    4 cups (1 L) organic soy milk
    3/4 cup (175 mL) organic shortgrain brown rice
    1/3 cup (75 mL) brown sugar
    1/4 cup (60 mL) organic raisins or currants
    1/4 cup (60 mL) organic dried cranberries
    1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon

    1. In a medium saucepan, stir together the soy milk and the rice. Bring the mixture to
      a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer. Stir occasionally. Cook
      until the rice is tender, about 60 minutes.
    2. Stir in the brown sugar, raisins, dried cranberries, and cinnamon. Continue stirring until the pudding becomes creamy in consistency. Remove from heat. Let sit
      covered for 15 minutes.
    3. Don’t be tempted to skip the 15-minute timeout; it really makes the dessert creamy. Stir once more and serve warm. Makes eight 1/2-cup (125 mL) servings.
