This recipe was love at first site for me. When I saw the recipe on Whole Foods website, I just had to make it right away. But that right away did not come for another 2 months, even though I was thinking of the dish a lot. It is a simple rice pudding with brown rice, almond milk and pureed dates and I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry & the fridge. What really caught my attention was the use of pureed dates in the recipe and I was imagining the combination of creamy almond milk with the rich sweetness of the dates even before making the dish.

It was so totally worth it when I finally made it, wasn’t disappointed at all. It was slightly chewy, sweet and nutty – a perfect balance of taste & texture — totally awesome. I used Lion brand date syrup that I brought back from India instead of pureeing the dates. I also used long grain brown rice, but short grain rice would probably make a more creamier rice pudding. So if you want to make this dish, try to get some short grain brown rice.

Almond Brown Rice Pudding
Instructions
  1. Bring rice and 4 cups of almond milk to a boil in a saucepan; lower the heat to medium low and cook until the rice is cooked and has almost absorbed the almond milk, stirring occasionally, takes about 45 minutes. I had to add an additional ½cup of milk for the rice to be completely cooked.
  2. Stir in date syrup, raisins, craisins, almond extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon, almonds into the rice and serve warm.
Recipe Notes

** To make date syrup: soak ½cup of pitted dates in ½cup cup of boiling water for 15 minutes. Then blend them into a puree along with the soaking liquid.
