Leftover Brown Rice Pudding

Do you ever have leftover rice that just seems to sit in the fridge waiting to be forgotten about?  This seems to happen often…I keep meaning to make fried vegetable rice and sometimes it just never happens.  Well, why not turn that rice into a special treat?

This was a delicious and healthy dessert that will have your kids asking for more.  Very tasty, served warm or cold.

Rice Pudding

Leftover Brown Rice Pudding

adjust ingredients based on the amount of rice that you have leftover (1 part rice, 1 part milk)

2 C leftover brown rice

2 C milk

1 TB sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 C raisins

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan over high heat until the milk comes to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer about 15-20 minutes, stirring often until the mixture thickens.  The pudding mixture will be creamy and the raisins are plump.  Leave to cool, then serve or refrigerate.

What do you do with your leftover rice?
