What is Rice Pudding?

Originally a way to use leftover rice, rice pudding is a simple dessert that has been adapted by many cultures around the world. For centuries, rice pudding has been an inexpensive dish that is accessible to all; in fact, it serves as a filling sweet treat and prevent food waste. It can be made with different rices like white rice, basmati, arborio and everything in between.

What Is a  Brūlée?

A Brūlée is the caramelized sugar on the surface of a dessert. This recipe resembles that of a typical creme Brūlée, but uses rice pudding rather than custard. Custards can be really hard to do well, so this recipe is a perfect easy alternative that will still impress your guests at the dinner table. 

How to Brūlée

To avoid having crunchy pieces of rice in your Brūlée, make sure to keep stirring the rice so that pieces do not get burnt in the pot. Using an adequate amount of milk should prevent the rice from being hard, so if you notice any crunchy pieces, add more milk and continue to stir. If it is too thick, the heat could be too high and if it is not thick enough, cook it longer!

Customize It

This recipe calls for the use of raspberries, but you can add whichever fresh berries you wish! Need a holiday dessert? Add cinnamon, nutmeg and even replace some sugar with maple syrup that will have your house smelling like Christmas! 

No Dairy? No Problem

Replace the milk with your favorite plant alternative. Oat milk will keep the flavor more neutral, while almond milk will add a nutty layer of flavor to your pudding. If the pudding is not thick enough or you want a creamier texture, try using canned coconut milk!
