apple and blackberry rice pudding

apple and blackberry rice pudding
16th August 2017 Katie

Isn’t it wonderful how nature makes things happen in perfect unison – the first windfalls from our apple tree land just when the blackberries are at their peak.  We’ve been making the most of this ‘free food’ in crumbles and pancakes. Then I discovered a traditional middle eastern way of cooking rice pudding that gave me the idea for this recipe.  Traditionally, they boil the rice in water first, then add milk, sugar and honey.  To cut out the refined sugar, I replaced the water with apple juice, added a touch of cinnamon and the result was divine.  Depending on the weather outside, it’s delicious hot or cold.  And did I mention that each serving comes in under 125 calories?

For a higher calorie option, simply use a high calorie dairy-free milk and add in 100ml of coconut cream when cooking the rice.  You could even stir in a spoonful of coconut oil.

Instructions
  1. Wash the rice and then place in a heavy-based pan with the apple juice. Bring to the boil and simmer with the lid off
  2. Add the dairy-free milk, cinnamon and honey (or maple syrup). Bring back up to the boil and simmer with the lid off for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally (more often in the last 5 minutes) until thickened. (You may need to add a couple of spoonfuls of water if it is too thick.)
  3. Whilst the rice is cooking, peel, core and slice the apples. Add to a pan with the blackberries and honey (or maple syrup, if using). Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until the apples 'fluff' up. Keep covered until required. You can blend the topping at this point to make it smooth.
  4. To assemble, spoon a quarter of the rice pudding into a small dish and top with the apple and blackberry mixture. Serve hot or cold.
  5. If you are not eating this straight away, please cool and chill rice quickly and eat within 24 hours of cooking.
