Using basmati rice adds a special fragrance to rice pudding. This is a true comfort food that warms the heart and definitely the soul. Try serving this rice pudding with other favourite fruits like strawberries or peaches.

3 cups (750 mL) enriched vanilla soy or rice beverage or milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) basmati rice
3 tbsp (45 mL) granulated sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon or cardamom
1 mango, peeled and thinly sliced


  1. In heavy saucepan bring soy beverage and rice to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Divide into custard cups and top with sliced mango.
