Vanilla Coconut Rice Pudding

Serves 6 Prep Time 2 hours   Cook Time 45 minutes   Rated:

What is better on a cold night in, than a big ole bowl of that old favourite, rice pudding? With a bit of a Tenina tweak, of course! This dessert is so warm and fuzzy, you may want to finish it off on a cold morning for breakfast, with some fresh berries in place of the jam and to make you feel better, a dollop of yoghurt instead of cream. That makes it breakfasty right? That’s if there’s any left. Good luck with that idea!

This recipe does appear in The Convenient Vegetarian cookbook, because well, it was conveniently vegetarian. Dessert risotto...dessert porridge! Very filling in an old fashioned sort of way.
