Orange zest, cranberries, and raisins add a sweet flavor to this dessert. It’s great for people watching their weight because it’s low in fat, but very satisfying to the tastebuds.
How To Make Creamy Rice Pudding
In a heavy medium-size saucepan, bring the milk, rice, zest, sugar and salt to a boil.
Reduce the heat to low. Cover and gently simmer until the rice is tender and the milk is almost absorbed, stirring occasionally, about 1-1 1/2 hours.
Remove the cover and add the vanilla and nutmeg and stir to blend over low heat until the mixture is thick, about 5-10 minutes.
Remove the zest. Stir in the cranberries and raisins.
Sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired. Serve warm for that added touch of comfort.
