Creamy rice pudding with… brown rice? That’s right!

Rice is such a versatile food that you can use this dish as a creamy dessert or enjoy it as a sweet, tasty and filling breakfast! If you want to add more nutty goodness, toss in slivered almonds or chopped walnuts. We recommend you keep a box or two of our Minute® Instant Rice on hand for any occasion.
For a vegan version of this recipe, use your favorite plant-based milk and leave out the butter. Maple syrup is naturally plant-based and does not need to be substituted.
