Rice Pudding

One of my favorite comfort foods is rice pudding. I saw this made on TV a few weeks ago and it looked delicious. I tried it yesterday and it IS delicious! I omitted the fruit compote on top but I bet it would be wonderful.

Rice Pudding

2 cups water
1 cup Arborio rice
3 cups vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Bring the water to a boil in a medium sized, heavy, ovenproof saucepan. Add the rice, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, until rice is nearly cooked. In a large bowl, whisk the soymilk, sugar, and salt. When the rice is cooked and still hot, add the soymilk mixture and cinnamon stick. Cover, place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven, uncover, and remove the cinnamon stick. Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pudding will be slightly liquidy; the liquid will continue to absorb into the rice and thicken as the pudding cools. Distribute among 8 bowls, drizzle each with 1 teaspoon of the condensed milk. Dust with cinnamon and nutmeg, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I've never had rice pudding but I'm not sure I'd be a fan. I do, however, really enjoy your recipes. I cook *a lot*, because I enjoy it so I'm always on the lookout for new stuff.
