When I made this last night, I told my kids: “this tastes like home!” I grew up eating rice pudding that my mom made. This version is a super simple and lighter version, where what you taste is the creamy and nutty rice along with the sweetness of the milk and a little vanilla. There are only a few ingredients here, so make it with your pantry staples. It is pure comfort food. I love to eat this warm, right after it is cooked, but it tastes great the next day as well.
