Tasia asked for a "soy pudding", here is my favorite rice pudding, my eat
anything 20 something daughter loves it, too.
2 cups cooked short grain rice, white or brown
3 - 4 cups nonfat vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup pitted, chopped dates, well packed (use more if you like it really
1/2 cup raisins or currants
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Using a medium size, heavy bottom sauce pan, bring soymilk, rice, dates, and
raisins to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly for 10 - 15
minutes, until the mixture is thick and creamy. Add nutmeg and vanilla,
stir to blend well.
Chill and serve.
Note: the dates actually disolve inthe cooking and add a rich, brown sugary
flavor, it also makes the pudding a bit on the tan side. I like to add in a
small, peeled chopped apple or diced fresh peaches in season.
