What is rice pudding?
Rice pudding is a dessert made from rice and water or milk.
It’s often combined with other ingredients like cinnamon, vanilla and sweet currants like raisins. The dessert tastes sweet and is thick and creamy.
Is rice pudding vegan?
Usually, rice pudding isn’t vegan because it uses dairy milk and butter for thickening.
The following recipe, however, is a great vegan alternative that substitutes the dairy milk for soy milk.
Soy milk works well as an alternative because it has a similar consistency to dairy milk and a very neutral taste.
The coconut milk in this recipe works well in place of butter because it is a great thickening agent and adds a lovely flavour.
Do I have to use a slow cooker?
This recipe is a slow cooker recipe, but it’s easy to make this rice pudding if you don’t have one.
To create this rice pudding without using a slow cooker, simply bring the rice and milk to a boil on the stove and then simmer for around 20 minutes. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir until it thickens, but don’t let the mixture boil to avoid curdling.
Don’t be worried if the rice pudding is slightly loose, because the mixture will thicken on standing.
As with the slow cooker version, serve with the blueberries as a topping.
