Are you a rice pudding fan? I am! I love how sticky and full of chewy texture it is. It’s more common to make rice pudding out of leftover cooked rice, but if you have a hankering and want to make it from scratch, then you’ve come to the right place.

This is one of those fantastic recipes where you just combine all of the ingredients, lock on the lid, and let it go. Brown rice takes 22 minutes in the pressure cooker to cook, but I promise it’s worth the wait. This yummy vegan dessert can be eaten right out of the pot, or can be served at room temperature or even cold.

I do recommend using organic brown rice if at all possible. The reason is because rice has been shown to be contaminated with arsenic. Some folks believe that white rice might be a better option to avoid the outer bran layer, but I think consuming organic brown rice occasionally should be fine.
