Rice pudding

…is the easiest dessert ever.  And in our house we always have left over rice.  I’m trying to work on my goal of reducing food waste in our house, and while I think I’m making progress, sometimes I don’t think I’m doing such a great job.  But, while looking through what was in the fridge that needed consuming, I realized that I had quite a bit of rice that was on that list.  So, on my long and winding way to a zero waste household, here’s what I did:

1. Poured 3 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of raisins, 2 tablespoons vanilla, 2 tablespoons sugar into a pot on the stove. 

2. Turned the burner on to medium-high.

3. Added all the leftover rice from my fridge to the pot.

4. Stirred until all the clumps of rice relaxed.

5. Lowered the heat to a very low simmmer, and covered the pot.

6. Let it cook while we made dinner, stirring occasionally, adding cinnamon when the milk was nearly all absorbed.

Voila!  Dessert on a weeknight (and enough left over for one breakfast – mine, I’m hoping!).
