“I hesitate to call this rice pudding because that implies a mushy consistency. I love this because the rice keeps its texture; and besides being so adaptable, it's easy to throw together any morning you have leftover grain on hand!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Firstly, note: PLEASE substitute any nuts or seeds you like for this! Personally I'm trying it today with toasted sunflower seeds. Other cooked grain will also work, of course; I have tried and liked with millet.
  2. The flavor of the dates is so delicious I can't imagine using anything else, but again, whatever you like :-).
  3. Combine rice and soymilk in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for 40-60 sec., depending on how hot your microwave is.
  4. Stir the chopped dates into the rice and microwave again, until the milk starts to bubble.
  5. Quickly stir in the nuts/seeds and diced apple, and COVER the whole bowl, with a plate or lid. Let sit covered for 5-8 minutes. This will allow the flavors to blend, and the apple will get slightly soft as though baked.
