This tastes like a real treat, not a "light" one. I used egg substitute instead of eggs and I did not add the orange peel, but mine came out fabulous. Its from a light cookbook, the name of which I cannot remember. The cooking time includes extra time to cook and cool the rice. I used short-grain and it worked well.
- 3 egg whites
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 cups skim milk
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2⁄3 cup cooked rice
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (optional)
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, egg, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Beat till well combined but not foamy. Stir in the cooked rice, raisins, and if desired, orange peel. Sparay a 1 1/2 qt casserole with nonstick spray. Pour the egg mixture into the casserole. Place the casserole in a baking pan; add boiling water to the baking pan to a depth of 1 inch.
- Bake uncovered, in a 325 oven for 45 to 55 min or till just set, stirring after 35 minutes. Serve warm or chilled. If desired, sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
I just made this, and it turned out well, i didnt use the orange peel and used short grain rice. Its a tasty treat :)
