When I make rice, I always cook a cup or two extra. That way, I have rice that can be used in fried rice, or rice pudding or a casserole or something else that calls for rice. My kids also like to eat rice and milk with cinnamon and sugar, as a snack or for an easy breakfast or dinner.
Here's my recipe for easy rice pudding.
Easy Rice Pudding
leftover rice-about 3 cups cooked (amount can vary somewhat, I just try and cook an extra cup of regular uncooked rice when I'm making rice for dinner so I know I'll have leftovers)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat the rice with sweetened condensed milk, water and cinnamon. If you did not add salt when you originally cooked your rice, add a dash of salt. Stir until the rice mixture thickens up with the milk mixture. When thickened, add vanilla and remove from heat. Cool for 5 minutes. Eat warm or refrigerate and eat cold. My girls especially love this.
