Arborio Rice Pudding
Makes 8 servings
1 cup arborio rice
¼ tsp kosher salt
2 cups water
4 cups nonfat milk
2 Tbsp agave nectar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
¼ cup raisins
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine the rice, salt and water in saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until the water is absorbed, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup milk to the rice and stir until absorbed, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining 3 cups milk, adding 1 cup at a time.
Beat the eggs and egg yolk in a bowl. Remove ½ cup rice mixture and whisk into remaining rice. Cook 1 minute more.
Stir in raisins, cinnamon and vanilla.
Transfer the pudding to serving dishes. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Chill until cooled. To serve, remove plastic; top with sugar-free, gluten-free whipped topping, if desired.
