3 1/2 cups


  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • ½ cup vanilla soy milk

  • ¼ cup golden raisins (Optional)

  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon buttery spread (such as Smart Balance®)

  • 2 whole star anise pods

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup sliced almonds (Optional)


  1. Bring water and brown rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.

  2. Combine cooked rice, coconut milk, soy milk, raisins, agave nectar, margarine, star anise, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to set until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove star anise and garnish with almonds.

Cook's Notes:

You can, of course, use dairy products and any variety of rice you may choose.

You may also use honey or brown sugar in place of agave.
