This is a very delicious rice dish! It's similar to an Indian-style rice pudding recipe. Enjoy! Top with slivered almonds and cinnamon if you'd like.

Here's how I interpreted this recipe: with short-grain brown rice, fat-free milk, and light margarine instead of butter. I also have a kidlet here who loathes all raisins on earth, so I used dried cranberries instead, which IMO works great with lemon, so I think it was a safe substitution. I also mixed in 2 tsp of dissolved cornstarch, just my preference, because I like my rice puddings very thick. It came out perfectly. Lightly sweet, bright flavors, and so healthy for such a great treat! There is no way this recipe was bland. Also,the cinnamon and almonds sprinkled on top were perfect. I've made rice pudding the 'old way' a hundred times... it was never this good. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I thought it tasted fine but my family didn't like it. It turned out too sweet and tasted almost like eating a spoon of pure honey. Read More

This was probably meant for dessert but I ate it for breakfast! yum yum. 1/3 cup of honey was plenty of sweetness for me and I may reduce it even more next time. Read More

This was a great way to use my left-over brown rice! I added dried cranberries instead of rasins fat free milk and a bit of vanilla but skipped the lemon (didn't have any around the house). I also put in two tsp dissolved corn starch for thickness. Turned out great for a light dinner and a fabulous pre-workout breakfast. This pudding was creamy sweet and filling. Read More
