I still need to sprinkle some cinnamon on top,but I could not wait to try it out.

Leftover Rice?

Eating Chinese?  Bet you did not eat the rice because of everything else.  What is a person to do with leftover rice?  Make Rice Pudding!

Sure you can start it from scratch, but the next time you cook rice, cook extra just so you can make Rice Pudding with it.  It’s a piece of cake. . . well okay grains of rice.

The next question one must ask themselves is what kind of texture do they like?

Thick and ricey or more pudding like?  I go for the more pudding like. . . . Ideally for me it would be almost like tapioca pudding like but with rice.  Most recipes out there are just too thick for me.

Creamy and pudding like!

Through trial and error, I found it takes a lot of liquid (milk) to make a creamy rice pudding.  Sure if you cook your rice in milk from the get-go its easier, but you can get just as good results using precooked leftover rice.

Recipe Notes

Sweetener - Feel free to substitute a low calorie sweetener for the granulated sugar.  Brown sugar also works well.
