"tyler florence knows how to use up leftover rice!"
Serving Size: 1 (255 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"This is the best recipe for using leftover rice. I've used it many, many times. Since I never know how much rice I'll have leftover I use the following proportions: for each 1 cup of cooked rice, I use 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons butter. Probably 2 tablespoons of raisins; I often leave them out. The rest is sort of random. I once used 3/4 cup of grated Ghirardeli chocolate with 4 cups of rice and it was a disaster. 1/2 cup would have been more than enough. As you can tell this is a fun recipe to play with."
"Great way to use up leftover rice. Used regular white rice, next time I'll leave out the lemon, but it was yummy. Definately making it again and again!"
"Very good! I did not add the lemon zest (didn't have it) and I used soy milk and oil to make it vegan. I will definitely make this again."
"Fabulous and Fast! I used leftover rice from the dinner the night previous when I WAY overestimated how much rice was needed! Loved the addition of the lemon zest. I almost didn't put it in but it adds such a nice depth of flavor with the cinnamon. I appreciated that I didn't have to put this in the oven to bake too. I'm keeping this recipe handy to make the next time I "overestimate" the rice (or maybe I'll just make too much on purpose)!! Thanks. ***Update since first rating: I've made this numerous times now and we still love it! Delicious!!"
"This was my first taste ever of rice pudding, and I was a little skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was very tasty. I halved the recipe and omitted the lemon, but still enjoyed it. It's very rich and a little bit goes a long way. Thanks for a great recipe, chia! I know how I'll be using up leftover rice from now on!"
"Wow, what a great recipe! I substituted a one cup of heavy cream for one of the cups of milk. Can you say "rich"?! I didn't think it would "work", but it thickened nicely. I omitted the lemon rind and putting the cinnamon on top. This rice pudding is addictive!"
"Delicious and easy. Two of my main requirements!"
"I just loved this ! i made it with bronw rice. At first I thought it would be to thin but it wasn`t. This is definitely ROCKING!!!"
"LOVE this recipe! I halved it this time and it's oh so creamy and delicious, exactly what I was craving. I did skip the lemon zest as I don't keep it in my pantry usually, and it's still absolutely decadent. Rave reviews from me! Thank you! =)"
"Delicious and so easy! I used maple syrup instead of sugar and no lemon zest."
"Fabulous - this is my standard rice pudding recipe. Omitted lemon zest simply because I didn't have a lemon on hand and it was still outstanding."
"So good and so easy!! I used brown jasmine rice and skim milk."
"YummY! After I cooked rice, I added ingredients to pan instead of crock and omitted Lemon, brought ingredients to a simmer, placed on low heat, stirred ever 5 mins for 15 mins. Then I removed from heat, added vanilla and whole teaspoon of cinnamon to pan. YUM YUM!"
"I had some leftover rice that needed using up. For personal preference, I left out the lemon and butter and found it perfect for our tastes. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe."
"This is a terrific recipe for using leftover rice! To cut down on calories and fat, I omitted the butter and the raisins, and I used skim milk and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. The pudding came out creamy and sweet. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thank you for sharing!"
"I guess this is ok for someone who has never had rice pudding before, but I would recommend making the pudding with uncooked rice over low & let it go for a couple of hours. I was craving rice pudding & didn't want to wait..my milk scorched, the rice got too done & became once big sticky mess. Really pretty gross. I had to throw a bunch of cool whip in it to make it somewhat edible. I'll probably throw out the rest. I'll stick to old fashioned recipes for rice pudding."
"Very easy to make and tastes great! I added vanilla instead of lemon."
"This made for a great, creamy rice pudding. I left out the raisins (personal preference). I would have added some dried cranberrie, but I was all out. Topped off with a little whipped cream. Yummy!"
"Easy and fast! I didn't have raisins and it was still good. I made a half recipe. I think I could have used half the cinnamon and still been okay."
