I made a non-dairy version of this easy recipe with almond milk instead of regular milk, and it was delicious. Because I used sweet almond milk from the Italian market, I eliminated the granulated sugar and it was sweet enough. I also used golden raisins, which complemented the almond flavor very well. Try it!

I have to admit *sigh* that I have never had rice pudding before. This is really good! I wasn't sure how thick it should be, but I like it the way it is - maybe thicker than usual? Delicious recipe with easy instructions and ingredients that you should have on hand. I proudly made this for the chef I adopted for Spring 2009 PAC. Thanks!
