How to prepare rice pudding?

Rice pudding is certainly one of the simplest desserts to make! The preparation of the rice pudding takes only a few minutes.

Start by boiling the sugar and milk in a saucepan. You can also prepare unsweetened rice pudding, in which case you simply boil the milk alone. If you use vanilla, now is the time to add it.

Then pour the rice into the pan and cook over low heat, stirring regularly. Count 100 g of rice for 1 liter of milk. Cooking time is about 20-25 minutes. Check that the rice is cooked through before removing the pan from the heat. If there is still a little milk that has not yet been absorbed, it does not matter, the rice will finish absorbing the milk as it cools.

Let the rice cool to room temperature before serving. Once cooled, you can store it in the refrigerator. Tip: If you serve this rice pudding as a dessert, pour the rice pudding into small ramekins.

How to prepare rhubarb compote?

To prepare this rhubarb compote, I started by choosing rhubarb stalks that were quite pink, this will give the compote some color.

Then I washed my rhubarb stalks, cut off the ends but did not peel them to preserve the color and obtain a pink compote.

The preparation is also very simple: pour the sugar and the rhubarb in a saucepan and cook over low heat for 25 minutes. You can add vanilla or even cinnamon.

This rhubarb compote is delicious with this rice pudding but also with yogurt or porridge.
