chocolate orange rice pudding- gluten free, dairy free
After reading about Samoan cocoa rice pudding, I decided to make a chocolate pudding inspired by the more traditional decadent version which includes high quality cocoa, coconut and coconut cream. I did include a lemon tree leaf which gave my rice a wonderful aroma.
My recipe included:
- Medium grain white rice (about a cup and a half
- Two tablespoons of cocoa powder
- One lemon leaf
- Orange rind
- 350mls soy milk
- Half a cup of brown sugar
Method: cook rice in saucepan with lemon leaf (I added a teaspoon of olive oil to mine and heated the rice through then added water. Once rice is almost cooked add all other ingredients and simmer on low heat until cooked, stir regularly. Makes a wonderful dessert/ afternoon tea. Lovely chocolate orange flavour.
