Rice Pudding

This rice pudding is different from any other that I have tried. It is unusual, but again, absolutely delicious. If there are any viewers who visited Rumbles Vegetarian Restaurant on Main Street, Claremont, Cape Town, South Africa, in the early 1980's, you may have tried this dessert.

We were very disappointed that Rumbles Restaurant closed for business as they had several unique, healthful and delicious items on their menu. I have since tried to make my versions of the special dishes that they used to serve.

The recipe asks for cooked brown rice. I usually cook about a cup of raw rice and use the leftovers from dinner for this dessert. Follow directions on pack on how to cook rice.

This dish is very quick to put together. Lay out all the ingredients on the table. Each guest can actually assemble their own dessert. See directions and image on the right. The only rich ingredient is cream, you may substitute this with low fat cream. However the occasional splurge is okay. Please refer to this Article about Whipping Cream

Here is the recipe for Rice Pudding

  4. The Rice Pudding is now done & ready to be served
  5. The amounts listed here will probably serve 2 people. Just add more of each ingredient to serve others or a second helping for yourself.
  6. The combination of all of these ingredients is just delicious
