    Step 1

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Prepare rice according to package directions. Spread pecans on baking sheet and toast for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely.

    Step 2

  • In a large saucepan, combine coconut milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Slowly add about 1/2 cup of hot liquid to eggs and beat well. Stir egg mixture back into saucepan, stirring constantly, and cooking over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cooked rice, pecans and vanilla.

    Step 3

  • Pour mixture into a greased 13×9-inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Step 4

  • Meanwhile, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks. Add the maple syrup and continue to beat until stiffer peaks form. Don’t overwhip. Serve with warm pudding. 

    Recipe Tip

    For sweeter pudding, increase brown sugar to 1 1/2 cups. To add flavor to your toasted pecans, drizzle them with vegetable oil before toasting in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
