I made this for dessert this weekend and it was great (i was trying to use up some dried cherries). It's also pretty healthy!

Just finished this & it was so yum! I needed a recipe for dried cherries & I had some leftover cooked rice in the fridge, however I didn't have any almond essence, so I substituted vanilla essence. Before cooking I sprinkled with slivered almonds & cinnamon ~ it turned out perfect. So quick & easy, will definetly make again!
