How to stay warm

One thing seriously lacking out there in the interwebs are Engine 2 desserts. I've found a few that are already in the book, but otherwise, you can forget it. I made this tonight, because I was craving something kind of sweet and warm.

Engine 2 rice pudding

Engine 2 Rice Pudding
makes about 6 one cup servings

1/2 cup short grain brown rice, rinsed
1 14-oz can light coconut milk
1 1/4 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (I went with rice milk for this one)
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cardamom
stevia, optional
2 cups fruit (anything goes; fresh or frozen. I used frozen peaches and cherries)

In a large pot with a cover, combine the rice and milks. Bring to a boil, reduce to a low simmer, and cover. Check on it every 10 minutes or so, and stir. After about an hour, the rice should be cooked. Whisk in the cornstarch and spices. Increase heat to a low boil, and stir for about a minute. Fold in fruit of choice. Heat through. Add stevia to taste if you want a sweeter flavor. Pour into bowls, and either cool to room temperature, or chill for cold pudding.

How you doing on E-2. I've been doing it pretty much since last MoFo, and I have a bunch of desserts I've made.
Rice pudding is always perfect though.
