Sunday Supper/Rice Pudding and Rice Bread


This recipe comes from my old, stained and torn copy of Moosewood Cooking. This is a perfectly wonderful rice pudding.

Rice Pudding

2 cups cooked brown rice
2 eggs
1 cup milk combined with 1 t. vanilla
1/3 cup honey
handful of raisins
1/2 t. cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1/2 t. freshly-grated lemon rind
1 cup plain yogurt

Beat eggs, milk, and honey together in a blender.
Combine with cooked rice and remaining ingredients, except for the yogurt.
Spread into a buttered 8 inch square pan, and bake in preheated 350º F. oven for 25 minutes.
Stir well every 8-10 minutes during baking.
Remove from oven after 25 minutes.
It'll still be loose, but will solidify as it cools.
After it has cooled 10 minutes, stir in the yogurt.
Eat it hot, warm, or cold.

This is from my American Harvest cookbook.

Philpy (Hot Rice Bread)

1 cup well-cooked brown rice
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
2 T. melted butter

Preheat oven to 350º F.
Mash the rice as finely as possible with the tines of a fork. (I never do this)
In a mixing bowl, combine the beaten egg with the milk, then stir in the mashed rice.
Add the flour, salt, baking powder and stir briskly until the mixture is smooth.
Stir in the melted butter.
Pour the mixture into an oiled 9-inch pie pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and set.
Cut into wedges and serve hot with butter, jam, or maple syrup.

This supper is one of our very most favorites. I've been making both recipes for a long time, and they go well together. We call it our "rice is nice" meal.

  2. Oh, Jeanne it is so good! I could eat the whole thing at one sitting. :<) I love your new picture. Until I clicked it to make it bigger, I thought it was you in a white sweater with snow behind. :<) But the rocks make a good stand-in.

  3. Nan, do you have other favorites from Moosewood? I keep picking the book up at the bookstore since I'm loving her new one - the Vegetable book - so much.

  4. Tara, I make the Tabouli from that cookbook as well as the Rice Pudding. I should try some others, too. This is the cookbook that doesn't have a regular index, and Mollie mentions somewhere that it was hard for readers to find things. :<)

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
