INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 8
  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups plus 1 tablespoon gluten-free vanilla rice milk, divided (see Tip)

DIRECTIONS
  1. Combine rice, water and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until the liquid is fully absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.

  4. Stir cornstarch and the remaining 1 tablespoon rice milk in a small bowl until smooth; add to the pudding. Continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture is the consistency of porridge, about 10 minutes.
