A delicious rice pudding is a great way to use up leftover rice. This pudding, flavored with raisins, orange zest, and vanilla extract, can be eaten warm or chilled and can be spiced up with ground cinnamon. For a flavorful warm-weather variation, you make rice pudding parfaits by spooning alternating layers of rice pudding and cut-up fruit or berries into parfait glasses or goblets.
