Arroz con leche
A Spanish pudding made from rice that’s cooked in milk with various flavorings such as vanilla, lemon and cinnamon.
- 1 cup long-grain rice
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups water
- 4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
- 1 cup sugar
- Ground cinnamon (for garnish)
- In medium saucepan, bring rice, cinnamon stick, salt and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover saucepan and reduce heat to low. Let simmer until most of the liquid has absorbed and the rice is completely cooked, about 15 minutes.
- Add milk to rice. (If using raisins, add them with the milk.) Cover and let simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the milk starts to bubble. Stir in the sugar; simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally for another 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let rice cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon before serving. Serve warm or refrigerate 2 hours and serve it cold. Enjoy!
