Our cheat’s version of traditional rice pudding uses a risotto base so it’s extra thick and creamy

Ingredients

Reduced-fat milk

2 cup(s), (500ml)

Cinnamon quill

1 whole

Rice, arborio, boiled

250 g, (see note)

Brown sugar

¼ cup(s), (55g)

Dried fig(s)

½ cup(s), (100g), finely chopped, semi-dried

Instructions

  1. Place milk and cinnamon in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Remove and discard cinnamon.
  2. Stir in risotto base and 2 tablespoons sugar and return to medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 12–15 minutes or until most of the liquid has absorbed and the pudding is thick. Stir in half the figs. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Spoon rice pudding into serving dishes. Serve sprinkled with remaining sugar and figs.

Notes

We used SunRice brand risotto base. It is available with other meal bases in most supermarkets.
