Rice pudding is a great way to use leftover brown rice.

Ingredients

Long grain cooked brown rice

2 cup(s)

Low-fat milk

1½ cup(s)

Sugar

½ cup(s)

Raisins

¼ cup(s)

Dried cranberries

¼ cup(s)

Almond extract

¼ tsp

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine the rice, milk, sugar, raisins, and cranberries in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Serve at once, let cool to room temperature, or cover and refrigerate and serve cold. Yields scant 1⁄2 cup per serving.

Notes

If you have none, try picking up a container from your local Chinese restaurant the day before you plan on preparing the recipe.
