Vegan rice pudding

Many have a grandmother that makes fabulous rice pudding. However, the recipe for rice pudding that she almost made famous in her area is not what we use today. This recipe is vegan and contains no allergens that some here must avoid. We used cooked rice, almond milk, raisins, vanilla, sugar (coconut sugar works well here) cinnamon and ground ginger and ground cloves. My grandmother added evaporated milk and eggs to her rice to make rice pudding. Mixed to the consistency and taste we know is appreciated here, this was then baked for 20 minutes at 350 in a convection oven. Some say yum to rice pudding. Others just say no! What about you?

I loved the rice puddings that both my grandmother and my mother used to make. Deliciously creamy.

Some here like it baked until it is stiff, so we often make two batches.

I am not vegan and do not have allergies to certain foods, but I do appreciate "healthier" versions of recipes, especially if they taste pretty darn good! I love almond milk - and it does seem to work in many recipes as a dairy substitute (oh sometimes it does not). I would love to do away with sugar, but well, I'm trying out raw sugar as a replacement for now. How is that coconut sugar? I've been meaning to try that out! Did you just mix all the ingredients and bake it like that?

We just mix things according to eye/taste and bake. So many sugars are thought to feed cancer cells...Stevia and Monk fruit are supposed to be good choices.

@PatZAnthony I like that - cooking by "feel". I'll have to look into Monk fruit - I've never heard of it! Yah, sugar is not good for us - oh but so many are addicted to it.

Sounds delicous we cook rice in milk with cardamom and let it cooked and reduced then add sugar and lastly add grounded pistachos and almonds and few drops of rose water.

The cardamon and pistachios sound like a great option we might try here.

My late mother was an excellent cook. Everyone loved her rice cakes called Puto, bibingka, and sinumans.

I like rice pudding but without eggs, I do not like the taste of the egg.

No that is one pudding I don't care much for. But I would rather have chocolate.

My Mum made a great rice pudding but Vince doesn't like it so I don't bother to cook it just for me. And - I can't make it like she did.

I love rice pudding and I make mine from scratcch with raw rice and yes eggs and milk, cinnamon, sugar, raisins and vanilla. It cooks for 2/5 hours slowly and is out of this world good. I boil the raisins a little first to make sure they are soft. Last time I used dried cherries and that was also delish!!
