Vegan rice pudding with plum compote

When we were kids, we loved to eat rice pudding like crazy! And we always made this constant humming sound: mhhhhhh, yum. Topped with sugar, cinnamon and morello cherries this dish was always a hit! Today I often change the topping with homemade compote, but I still make this humming sound: so good! And guess what, it's too easy to be true with plant-based milk.
