Rice Dessert Recipes
1. Coconut Rice Pudding With Mango And Pineapple
1 cup uncooked white rice, preferably jasmine rice
3 cups coconut milk (full fat)
One can (14 oz.) of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar (white or brown) – or to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, add the rice. Stir well and cook until the rice starts to toast and become fragrant. Add in the sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk. Bring this mixture to a boil and lower the heat to simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally, so it does not stick on the bottom of the pan. If you want your pudding to be thicker, add sugar. Otherwise, add pineapple chunks, mango pieces, and green beans.
2. Nutella Rice Krispie Treats
3 tbsp. Nutella, melted
3 tbsp. Rice Krispies Cereal
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff, plus extra to garnish
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups finely ground rice cereal mix
Six tablespoons butter, melted and divided
In a large bowl, combine the rice cereal and marshmallow fluff with a whisk until well blended. In another bowl, sift together the flour with the sugar. Stir in the rice cereal mixture and three tablespoons of butter. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined. Make sure that there are no lumps in the batter. Arrange a large piece of parchment paper on a flat surface. Place one-third of the bagel pieces into the middle of the paper. Top with one-third of the rice mixture. Spread over the top. Top with another piece of parchment paper and repeat steps 2-4 until you have used all the rice mixture, ending with batter in the center. Cover the popcorn and waxed paper with a large plastic bag, press the air, and seal it tightly. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight before serving. To serve, cut into bite-sized or desired pieces, transfer to a plate and garnish each portion with marshmallow fluff for extra sweetness and better presentation.
3. Brown Sugar And Cinnamon Rice Pudding
2 cups milk, lactose-free
2 cups cooked brown rice, chilled
3/4 cup strong coffee, cooled to room temperature
3/4 cup sugar, divided
One teaspoon ground cinnamon (adjust to taste)
Whipped cream and sprigs of fresh mint for garnish.
Add milk, brown rice, and coffee to a large bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine two tablespoons of the sugar and the cinnamon. Stir until well combined. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining sugar over medium-low heat until it bubbles slightly. Do not stir; it will burn or create an “oil slick.” Pour the hot sugar into the bowl of milk and rice mixture. Stir until well combined. Pour into individual bowls and garnish with whipped cream and mint sprigs.
4. Apple And Raisin Fried Rice
3 cups cooked white rice, cold
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 cup raisins, dried cranberries or cherries (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
Extra virgin olive oil for cooking the rice and egg
Salt to taste.
Icing sugar (optional) for garnish.
The night before: Mix the rice and apple pieces in a large bowl so that the apple picks up some of the rice’s flavor. Add in the raisins, cinnamon, and salt; stir to mix well and cover with plastic wrap to prevent the rice from drying overnight.
The next day: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and scramble the eggs until cooked. Add the rice mixture. Stir to combine with the eggs. When the rice starts to brown on one side, turn it over and add more oil if necessary (to keep it from sticking). Sprinkle with cinnamon and continue cooking until warm and all the egg is cooked through. If using dried fruit or other toppings, just before serving: Heat a small amount of olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat, then add toppings like chopped nuts or raisins, or dried fruit. Sauté for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
5. Berry-Basil Fried Rice
6 cups cooked white rice, chilled
6 tbsp. soy sauce
Ten medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup frozen raspberries (or any fresh berries)
2 cups fresh basil leaves, stems removed, torn into small pieces
The night before: Chop all ingredients and place them in a large bowl with a container with a lid for storing in the refrigerator overnight. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight for two days (the longer, the better). To prepare the next day: Add olive oil and sauté garlic until fragrant in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in frozen raspberries or other fruit and cook 10 minutes until soft. Then add the rice and raspberries or other fruit. Add the soy sauce, dates, and basil and stir to combine. Cook for about 3 minutes until all of the ingredients are heated through.
