This recipe was submitted by Bridget Hall, Halton Community Development and Support Worker at The AIDS Network as a part of our A Taste at Home campaign.
This recipe is a traditional, satisfying stape,
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
2 cups milk, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup golden raisins (optional)
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine cooked rice, 1 1/2 cups milk, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until thick and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir remaining 1/2 cup milk, golden raisins, beaten egg, and white sugar into the rice mixture; stirring continually. Continue cooking until egg is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat; stir butter and vanilla extract into the pudding.
While we may not be able to come together for an evening of great food and supporting our cause, great food can still bring us together, and so we are sharing with you the favourite recipes of our team, volunteers and community partners! Over the next few weeks we will be adding to this virtual cookbook to help inspire you in your own kitchen, and we hope our A Taste at Home campaign bring you the comfort these recipes bring our contributors. While we may be physically distant, we can still come together in a spirit of sharing and giving.
