Total time: 1 hour | Serves 4
  • 1/2 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 green cardamom pods
  • 1 quart low-fat soy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute

Step 1Combine rice and water in saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Drain rice and set aside.

Step 2Wrap cardamom pods in cheesecloth and tie with string. Place in large saucepan and add soy milk, rice, salt, cinnamon stick and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until rice is tender and liquid reduces until pudding-like, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and cardamom packet from saucepan. Blend a little of hot liquid into egg substitute, then stir all into hot pudding. Heat and stir just until thickened, about 1 minute. Let cool slightly, then serve in large shallow bowls and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Note: This low-sugar, whole-grain rice pudding would be a comforting alternative to oatmeal on a cool January morning. Make it ahead; it tastes even better the second day.
