This meal was just too easy to create with Minute’s Instant Brown Rice. It all came together in maybe 5 minutes and then while it baked in the oven I was able to sit down and do a craft. It worked so well with my busy schedule while also providing us the craving for our insatiable sweet tooth. I also felt not-so-guilty about this rice pudding, being that we were getting some great antioxidants from the cranberries as well as lots of fiber from the brown rice. That cancels out the 2 cups of sugar, right?
Paired with a hot cup of coffee it made the perfect afternoon snack and pick me up and Alea enjoyed every last bite of hers with a glass of milk! I think this would make the perfect dish to share at various get togethers with your friends and family or it’s easy to throw together quick for an after dinner dessert one night. Quick and easy is the name of the game, my friends. Next time I make this, I’d love to mix it up and use a little less white sugar so I can add some brown sugar and see how that tastes. That’s one thing I just love about cooking and baking– taking a recipe and making it my own or figuring out ways to make it even better!
