Our Vancouver weather has taken a turn and you can definitely feel that winter is on its way. It’s raining daily and I had to break out the scarves and winter jacket the other week. Cold weather means tasty treats like rice pudding, hot chocolate, and cottage pie. I will get to those in another post.
Since I went paleo last January, I have rice only a couple times a month. The other day my mum and I were talking about rice pudding. She also has food allergies, but they are not the same as mine. She was telling me how she found a rice pudding she could eat at the store the other day and I commented it has been years since I have had any.
This stuck with me and today I decided to get creative and make some. Most of the time when you have food allergies, the only time you get a treat is when you make it yourself.
I was quite happy how it turned out considering I improvised the whole thing. It made quite a big portion so I have leftovers for later this week. I might even try freezing it. Nothing is better than curling up in a warm blanket with turtle, a movie and a toasty bowl of hot rice pudding.
Due to my allergies, the recipe is gluten free, vegan, dairy free, nut free, and egg free. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
