Someone asked for a good rice pudding recipe. I tried for years to find a
good rice pudding recipe but was always very disappointed with the baked
versions in all the cookbooks. Finally I found one at Neosoft's recipe site.
You make it using the same technique used to make risotto. I start with one
cup of rice and two cups of skim milk. I simmer the rice in the milk,
stirring constantly. As the mixture dries out I add more milk, a little at a
time. You can add more milk until you achieve the desired consistency, some
like it rather dry, some like it very moist and saucy. Once the rice is
tender I add a teaspoon of vanilla and sugar to taste. My friend adds a
beaten egg to hers, making it taste very custard-like. It's simple, though
takes much tending to ensure that the pudding doesn't burn or dry out. But I
assure you it's worth the effort.
