Rice Pudding with Pears and Cinnamon

8 servings


  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
    2 cups water
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 cups rice milk
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp cinnamon, ground
    1 tbsp potato starch
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    4 organic pears, peeled, cored, and sliced
    Ground cinnamon, for garnish
  • Place rice, water, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until water is fully absorbed, about 45 minutes.
  • Add rice milk, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and stir well. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  • Mix potato starch with a few drops of water in a small bowl and stir into rice mixture. Continue stirring over low heat until mixture thickens and reaches consistency of pudding, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Transfer to a large bowl, cover, and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Divide into serving bowls and top with sliced pears. Garnish with cinnamon.
