Coconut Rice Pudding
(from allyou magazine May 2009)
- 3/4 cup uncooked rice
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 15-0z. cans unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- In a large saucepan, stir together rice, salt and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then stir, reduce heat to low, cover ans simmer until rice is cooked and water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
- Stir coconut milk and sugar into rice. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until thickened.
- Pour pudding into a serving bowl and chill.
**I found that it chilled and thickened better when I put it in individual serving bowls in the refrigerator
