Coconut Rice Pudding!

It’ll comfort you on a chilly autumn evening, delight you when spooned directly into your mouth from the refrigerator the next morning, and might just save you when, in the blink of an eye, the arctic winds of January/February come around and threaten to freeze your face off.

It’s a good recipe to keep around.

Vegan? You can use almond milk (though I can’t vouch for the store-bought stuff) in place of regular milk; it may be a little thinner, but no less delicious.

Coconut Rice Pudding (adapted from Gourmet)

1 to 1 1/2 cups cold, unsalted, cooked rice (depending on how thick you’d like it)

14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk, shaken

2 cups whole milk (or almond milk)

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 a teaspoon vanilla

In a 2-3 quart heavy saucepan, stir together rice, milk or almond milk, coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Bring to a simmer over moderate heat and cook (uncovered) until thickened, stirring frequently. It should be ready in about 40 minutes. Turn off heat, stir in vanilla extract, and serve warm. Chill any leftovers.

    Pudding is a favorite food – in all its lovely incarnations – but rice pudding is an especial favorite. Add coconut milk and you’ve elevated it to another realm. God bless you.
