Spiced Red Rice Pudding

23 Oct
Red Rice Pudding

Red Rice Pudding

I’m pretty excited about this healthy dessert because for the most part I tend to crave the opposite. Red rice is great for getting Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids and it’s also surprisingly high in protein, iron and potassium. I used to absolutely hate red rice, or at least I’m still stuck in an adolescent phase of despising any rice other than white rice. But I noticed a bag of red rice in my cupboard and decided that today I would be an adult and eat my healthy rice!  I made it with some tofu and vegetables (recipe in the making), but still had a hard time choking down the healthy. That’s when my mum mentioned that when she was living in the Philippines with my dad, they used to eat red rice pudding all the time. It was apparently their favourite dessert for a while. So I decided to try make my own vegan-ized red rice pudding!

Directions:

  1. Rinse red rice and drain. Add to a pot with water and bring to a boil with the lid on. Remove lid and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir occasionally and cook for 20-30 minutes until rice is puffy.
  2. Mash one banana while you wait for rice to cook.
  3. Bring temperature up to medium-high and pour almond milk, spices and banana in with rice.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes, until pudding is thick like oatmeal. Stir as needed. (While pudding is cooking you can toss in a few pitted medjool dates for an extra sweet treat!)
  5. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl and drizzle maple syrup. Add a bit more spice if you’d like and enjoy!
