My daughter really hates milk. Like completely refuses to drink the stuff. So, in an attempt to get some dairy and a few extra calories into her little one year old body, I made rice pudding.
Rice Pudding - Risotto Style
- In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Pour in rice and stir until all grains have been coated with butter. Pour in enough milk to cover rice by about 1/4 inch.
- Stir continuously until rice has soaked up the majority of the milk. Continue this process of adding milk and stirring until rice has softened completely. (About 5 rounds of pouring and stirring for me!)
- For the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, stir in brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Take off heat and stir in vanilla. Serve warm.
