Rice puddings are a perfect Welcoming Kitchen food. They are naturally gluten-free and are easily made vegan and free of allergens. This version fills your kitchen with the smell of apple pie and your belly with sweet, warm yumminess!
We shared this recipe as part of Cybele Pascal's Allergy Friendly Fridays.
4 cups rice milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon allspice
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup arborio rice
1 apple, peeled and chopped
Preheat oven to 325.
In a medium saucepan, combine rice milk, salt, spices and brown sugar.
Bring to a boil.
In a covered casserole, combine hot liquid and rice. Stir to combine.
Cover and bake for one hour.
Mix apples into rice pudding.
Let pudding sit for a couple of minutes until it thickens slightly.
Stir before serving.
You can use dried, sweetened cranberries, dried cherries or other fruit in place of the apples. The pudding is also creamy and sweet without the fruit.
