Make Rice Pudding Your Way!

Make this dish dairy-free and vegan by replacing the milk with your favorite plant-based beverage, such as almond milk or canned coconut milk. Use a vegan instant pudding mix, as well and cut out the egg, if you’re avoiding animal products. Using the egg gives this dish more of a custard-like consistency. If you choose to leave it out, simply make sure to keep the pudding over the burner until it has reached the desired thickness. Also, if you chill the rice pudding in the fridge, it will thicken as it sets.

You can easily bring this pudding back to its original consistency by using the microwave to heat it up. For chilled pudding, place plastic wrap on the surface of the hot pudding, to avoid a skin forming, and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
