¼ tsp

skim milk

2½ cup(s), (625ml)

Instructions

  1. Place the rice, vanilla and 1 cup (250ml) of the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining milk.
