Rice Pudding

Standard

I had some leftover jasmine rice from a couple days ago and in an effort to try to utilize food before it needs to be tossed in the trash, I decided to make into breakfast.  Here is a yummy way to use your leftover rice!

Rice Pudding

2 cups leftover cooked white rice (i used jasmine)
3 cups milk (any type, i used organic soy)
1/2 cup sugar
small pinch salt
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg, optional

Combine cooked rice, milk, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and stir in the vanilla & raisins. Cook until just about all of the milk is absorbed (10-30 minutes so don’t go far from your kitchen). Stir in cinnamon and/or nutmeg. Serve warm or cold. Makes 4-6 servings.

*If you are on a time crunch you can honestly just put all the ingredients in at once. That is what I did and it turned out great! Also, I didn’t measure the rice because it was already in a saucepan in my fridge, I just eyeballed it and it looked like about the right amount. This is a pretty forgiving recipe. If there is too much milk it will just take a little longer to absorb into the rice.  Make this! It’s good.

p.s. Baby Wyatt (7 weeks old!) and Momma are doing well.  It’s great to be back!

About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
