+ Howevermuch rice you want to turn into pudding
+ raisins (not required, but I like ‘em. dried date bits might work nicely, too)
+ cinnamon/clove/other flavor you want to put in it
+ microwavable container (I just use the tupperware that the rice is in)
1. Put your rice in the microwavable container, however much rice you want to make into the rice pudding.
2. Pour the milk over the rice, kinda like your breakfast cereal. The milk should just barely seep around the top layer of rice.
3. Microwave for a few minutes, more for more rice, less for less rice. (I’m sorry this isn’t very specific, it really depends on the microwave and the amount of rice.) The milk will evaporate a little, and seep into the rice. You’re basically re-cooking the rice in the milk.
When your rice comes out of the microwave it WILL BE HOT, so be careful.
4. Mix in raisins/dried fruit and sugar (to taste). Let sit for a little while, so the raisins can absorb some of the milk, and so the rice can, too. A few minutes (<15) should work fine. If you’re preparing dinner, you can go do that and let the rice sit, it’ll be fine.
5. Microwave again, for a minute or two.
6. Add in spices and let sit until you’re too impatient to wait anymore and just eat it.
(Be careful not to eat it when it’s too hot. If you have a refrigerator, sticking it in there for a few minutes’ll help)
The rice pudding won’t be anything fancy, unless you’re more skilled than I am, but it’s edible and a little delicious.
- Sweet Potatoes
- Oil (canola, olive, coconut, whatever)
- Salt, Pepper, Spices (Spice ideas - paprika, rosemary, curry powder, steak spice blend)
- Mayo (can use vegan or regular)
- Sriracha (other hot sauce will work too)
Preheat your oven to 450.
How to: Peel your sweet potatos and cut them into strips. You don’t need to worry about if they’re bigger wedge shapes, as long as the pieces are relatively thin. Toss the strips in a bowl with enough oil to coat. Season with salt, pepper, and spices. Lay on a pan, trying to not have the fries overlapping each other. Put in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Flip the fries once, about half-way through.
Dip - Mix together a heaping spoonful of mayo with a generous squeeze of sriracha. This really varies on how much spice you like. Mix together. Enjoy!
