Here’s the answer to the question of what to do with that leftover white rice from last night’s take out! Make a creamy, rice dessert – rice pudding! Before trying this recipe, I never had eaten rice pudding. I wish I didn’t wait so long to try it because it is a satisfying and sweet dessert!

3 cups white rice, cooked
3 cups milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of 1 lemon, grated
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided


  • Combine cooked rice, milk, sugar and butter in a medium saucepan.
  • Add raisins and vanilla.
  • Cook for 25 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Mix in lemon zest and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • Spoon pudding into a serving dish and dust with remaining cinnamon.
  • May serve chilled or at room temperature.
