Creamy Sheese Rice Pudding

Let's get cooking

Creamy, dairy free rice pudding with caramelised dried fruits - a sweet treat with none of the guilt thanks to our healthy, low fat cheese alternative. This recipe is a treat from Danielle.




   For the rice pudding

   For the caramelised dried fruits

  • 200 g mixed nuts and seeds (walnuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, linseeds "¦)
  • 140 g caster sugar

  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


Rice Pudding

  1. Put the rice, sugar and milk into a medium sized saucepan.
  2. Split the ½ vanilla pod horizontally and scrape the seeds into the pan.
  3. Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat.
  4. 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.
  5. Leave to cool down.
  6. Gently fold in 100g of Creamy Sheese and spoon into 4 ramequins.

Caramelised Dried Fruits

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

Sesame Shortbread

  1. Place the margarine and sugar into a food processor, mix with the paddle until smooth.
  2. Tip in both the flours and salt. Mix until thoroughly mixed and a uniform consistency.
  3. Roll out about 8mm thick between 2 sheets of baking parchment.
  4. Cut long shard shapes ( "oriental sticks") with a knife.
  5. 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!
