Ingredients

Low Fat Spread

10 g

Caster Sugar

1 tablespoons

Pudding Rice (Short Grain), Dry

100 g

Skimmed Milk

550 ml

Lemon(s)

1 zest(s) of 1, grated

Bay leaf, dry

1 leaf/leaves

Vanilla Pod

1 individual, split lengthways

Walnut Halves

10 g

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

150 g

Honey

4 teaspoons, level, clear, to serve

Instructions

  1. Melt the spread in a large, heavy-based pan over a low-medium heat. Add the sugar and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved, then add the rice. Stir to coat, then add the milk, half the lemon zest, the bay leaf and vanilla pod.
  2. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring often, until the rice is tender and all the milk is absorbed.
  3. Meanwhile, put the walnuts in a dry frying pan and cook over a medium-high heat, stirring, until just browned and fragrant, then remove from the heat and roughly chop.
  4. Stir the yogurt into the rice pudding. Divide between 4 bowls and serve each with 1 teaspoon of honey, a scattering of the chopped walnuts and the remaining lemon zest.
