Ingredients

For the rice pudding:
 40 g jasmine rice
400 ml soya milk
50 g caster sugar
½ vanilla pod
100 g Creamy Original Sheese
 
For the caramelised dried fruits:
200 g mixed nuts and seeds ( walnuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, linseeds…)

For the Sesame Shortbread:
 50 g sesame flour
25 g plain flour  (or gluten-free flour)
25 g caster sugar
55 g vegan margarine
1 pinch of salt

Method

Rice Pudding:
•    Put the rice, sugar and milk into a medium sized saucepan.
•    Split the ½ vanilla pod horizontally and scrape the seeds into the pan.
•    Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat.
•    Half cover with a lid, cook gently for 40-45 mins over a very low heat, stirring occasionally until the rice has swollen and is very tender.
•    Leave to cool down.
•    Gently fold in 100g of Creamy Sheese and spoon into 4 ramequins.


Caramelised Dried Fruits:
•    Mix together all the ingredients in a pan and place over moderate heat.
•    Stir constantly, allowing the mix to caramelise and making sure all the nuts are well coated.
•    Pour the nuts onto a greaseproof paper.
•    When cooled down, crush the nuts in a food processor, just a few pulses.


Sesame Shortbread:
•    Place the margarine and sugar into a food processor, mix with the paddle until smooth.
•    Tip in both the flours and salt. Mix until thoroughly mixed and a uniform consistency.
•    Roll out about 8mm thick between 2 sheets of baking parchment.
•    Cut long shard shapes ( “oriental sticks”) with a knife.
•    Lift the bottom paper onto a baking tray.Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for 10-12 min 170 degrees (gas 5-6). Once the shortbread is cool, sprinkle the caramelised dried fruits over the Creamy Sheese Rice Pudding and serve with the sesame shortbread on the side. Enjoy!
