Rice with milk

A simple and a very well known dessert. I remember the pot of rice and milk my mother did when I was a child. Of course it was more simple with only rice milk and sugar and no fancy flavor ... but oh... it was soooo good. Later, I found out that it was also the favorite dessert of my husband as well.
And here it is ... less sweet but you can add more sugar if you prefer or substitute with some filling of raspberry sauce or jam.

This dessert will always be in fashion due to its amazing taste and simplicity.

  • 2l milk
  • 400g risotto rice
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla essence
  • 50g sugar
  • zest of one lemon

  1. Heat the milk until simmering.
  2. Add vanilla essence, sugar and lemon zest. 
  3. Wash the rice and add it in the hot milk.
  4. Keep boiling at low-medium temperature for 30 minutes or until it becomes more thick. You need to mix continuously with a spoon to avoid  sticking to the bottom.
  5. Pour the rice with milk in little bowls and let them cool.
  6. Serve them with a sweet fruity sauce or jam.
