Adaption of Rice Pudding. This is not too sweet, but satisfying. Note: leftover rice can be used. Use 2 1/4 cups cooked rice and go to step 3 (omit salt and water).

This does not taste like lite rice pudding. DELICIOUS! It did take longer to cook than indicated, but the end results justify the means. To give it some Zing, I add some lime zest. AWESOME! Made for Lite/Low fat event in Cooking Photos.
