Rice Pudding with Cooked Rice

I am a huge fan of rice pudding, and once I realized it was so easy to make with leftover rice, it’s been a staple in our house. This recipe shortcuts the process by relying on precooked rice and then simply simmering it in milk for a brief amount of time. This means you can hover less by the stove since it’s less likely that the milk will stick to the pot (like can easily happen in more traditional recipes), and it’s much faster to make.

We love to make this with golden raisins and a nice sprinkle of cinnamon for flavor. This is a delicious dessert for weekdays or even for Easter, though we also enjoy it for snack and toddler breakfast depending on the week.

You can use leftover jasmine or basmati rice or start with fully cooked rice from the store—it’s up to you as to which is easiest.
