This is a recipe I've been making for ages so I thought I'd share it with you all seeing as it's so cold and dreary today! This black rice pudding warms you up right down to your toes and is much lighter than the traditional recipes or store-bought versions.
The black rice is stunningly chewy and flavoursome, and well worth trying to source. You can get a variety of it at Coles I think. It's slowly simmered until tender with vanilla bean, orange zest, splash of juice with some creamy almond milk.
You can serve it warm from the stove or cooled in the fridge. Either way, this black rice pudding is divine.
Don't forget, to add extra milk once it's cooked to thin it out if you'd like it more soupy, I love it with lots of extra milk!
- 2 cups black rice
