R228 Vegan Rice Pudding with Plum Compote

Vegan rice pudding with plum compote

Rice pudding is a perfectly childhood dish of mine that I enjoyed almost every week with different toppings and sauces. My sister and I ate full plates of rice pudding when we were children and even hummed happily while doing so (at least that's what our parents are telling us). Nowadays, I don't cook rice pudding that often anymore, because I often prefer a savory meal for lunch or dinner. But every now and then I have an appetite for it which is when I still enjoy this big plate of pure comfort.

Especially in the colder seasons I can only recommend to add rice pudding back to your cooking routine, but of course you can eat it all year long. Serve it with seasonal and regional ingredients and toppings like homemade compotes with apple, pear, cherry, rhubarb, or plums. Or top your rice pudding with jarred sour cherries, fresh berries, tangerines, and more. If you should have leftovers, serve them as dessert the next day.
