crazy good rice pudding

today is a cleaner take on the traditional rice pudding. i was craving something rich and creamy and warm this morning. olive and i had brown rice last night for dinner. the left over rice was sitting in the fridge just begging to be made into something delicious. of course, rice pudding is always a good idea.

this rice pudding is lacking white sugar, butter, white rice, and cream. what it isn't lacking? the creamy, rich, lush, sweet decadence that every rice pudding should have.

rice pudding:

2 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk (unsweetened)
1/3 cup coconut sugar (less if your milks are sweetened)
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg beaten
about 5 roughly chopped dates

in a saucepan combine rice, milks, sugar, and salt. cook over medium heat until boil forms, turn down to low and simmer until thick and creamy (takes a good 15 minutes). quickly stir in beaten egg (stir quickly and constantly) continue to stir and cook on low heat for additional 2 minutes. 

remove from heat, add dates, enjoy! if you traditionally like butter on yours, use some coconut oil. i however think this rich enough as is. 

best part is, you totally made use of that left over brown rice ; )
