I love milk rices - partly because they're the easiest dessert one can make, partly because they remind us all of childhood (at least in Eastern Europe where I grew up). And because it's nice to find variations, here's a vegan version made with coconut. Sweet and tropical tasting, it's the lightest finish possible to your evening, especially when preparing to drift away to sleep. Good night, kids :)
Last year: Tagliatelle with tuna, lemon, rucola and pine seeds.
Two years ago: Stuffed baked avocados (Middle Eastern).
Ingredients (serves 3-4):
- 250 g rice
- 350 ml coconut milk (creamy)
- 50 g sugar
- 80 g coconut flakes
Boil the rice in water according to package instructions. When the rice is boiled, drain it (if necessary) then immediately mix with the coconut milk, then with the sugar, and after all is well incorporated with the coconut flakes. Transfer to serving bowls and enjoy it before sleep with a good story. Dig in! :)
