Creamy Rice Pudding with Berries


When making any type of rice pudding, it pays to rinse the rice thoroughly before you begin to remove the excess starch, so the pudding has the creamiest consistency. Also, during cooking, be sure to keep the pan covered and to stir the rice occasionally (or as needed) so it doesn't stick to the bottom. Here the pudding is topped with a wild berry compote, using fresh or frozen (and thawed) fruit.

  • 1 liter skim milk
  • 100 grams sugar (yellow)
