Happy Holiday Hosting!
It’s that time of year again–hosting season! Whether it’s latkes for Hanukkah or a goose for your Christmas feast, most people focus on the showstoppers. My entire family is coming to visit me in NYC this Christmas. I wanted to have some dishes in my fridge that could used for snacking anytime. I’m not a big dessert person but I really love this Rice Pudding. It’s perfect for breakfast, tea or dessert… anytime of day.
This is a true comfort food with an air of sophistication with the pomegranate seeds and candied pecans. And every time I cook with pecans I think back to my childhood in Texas where we had pecan trees in my backyard. So for me it also warms my heart and soul, which I send out to you as you recreate this dish in your own home.
Another great thing about this recipe is that we’ve replaced the sugar with coconut sugar, and removed all of the dairy by using almond milk so it’s lighter on your hips! This is not your typical rice pudding. Let me know how you like it!
