Brown Rice Pudding

When I was growing up, my mom used to make German Milchreis (white rice pudding) a lot and we would spread it out thinly over large plates and sprinkle it (heavily) with cinnamon sugar, and it was super yummy! (Also I used a fork to make rows the entire length of the plate and pretended it was a farm and I was going to plant it with seeds. And then I ate it. Good times!)

This recipe is for brown rice pudding, which I think is just as good and it's a little healthier for you.

See the original brown rice pudding recipe here. (You can also see a recipe for German Milchreis here.)

Brown Rice Pudding

    • 2 cups cooked whole grain brown rice
    • 1 1/2 cups milk
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup or 1/2 cup honey or 1/2 cup agave nectar
    • 1/2 cup dark raisins
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or 1 teaspoon nutmeg or 1 teaspoon allspice
  1. In medium saucepan, combine rice, milk, syrup (or whatever sweetener), and raisins, & bring to boil.
  2. Reduce heat & simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Remove from heat & stir in butter & cinnamon.
  4. Enjoy hot or cold!
