Rainy Day Wild Rice Pudding

Pluviophile – a lover of rain.

I love rain. I love how it washes away the dirt and the dust to reveal bright shiny streets. I love the wonderful scent of rain and soil as it reminds me of the simple beauty of nature. I love the beautiful song birds after the rain as they go in search for worms. But what I love most about rain, is the quiet solitude that comes with it as I get mesmerized by the pelting rain drops.

It’s been raining constantly in Singapore. When it rains, the temperature drops and Singaporeans will take the opportunity to huddle up in jackets, coats and hoodies. And so I thought, how apt will it be to make some warm rice pudding as I enjoy the rain views from the comforts of home.

I actually got this beautiful cooked wild rice from a Korean restaurant. Was having dinner there but couldn’t finish the rice and so decided to have it packed away. It came at a perfect time for this recipe. This serves 2. Perfect for sharing with that special someone whom you do not need to talk to be understood.


Recipe: Rainy Day Wild Rice Pudding


Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked wild rice*
  • 2 teaspoons raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened

Directions:

  1. Heat almond milk in a saucepan on high heat till it boils. Lower to medium heat.
  2. Add wild rice to almond milk. Stirring and breaking up any large, sticky parts. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Lower the heat to a simmer, add raisins and continue stirring for about 5 minutes.
  4. When the rice have absorbed most of the almond milk, add cinnamon and stir evenly.
  5. Remove pan from heat.

*Alternative:You can use brown rice or black rice.

You can serve with sliced bananas or other seasonal fruits on hand. A drizzle of manuka honey works fine too. The sweetness will come from the fruits you use as there is no additional sugars in this dish. So it’s easy to adjust to each individual’s taste and preference.

Viola!
