Pensacola Real Estate Professionals is proud to present this quick and easy dessert recipe for Thanksgiving. If you are looking to put a twist on the typical Pumpkin Pie, why not try this recipe below for Pumpkin Rice Pudding.
2 cups short-grain or Arborio rice
6 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (optional)
1. In a large saucepan, combine the rice, milk, sugar, vanilla bean, orange zest, orange juice, and salt. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and most (but not all) of the liquid is absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Discard the vanilla bean. Stir in the pumpkin. The recipe can be made ahead to this point.
3. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days ahead. To rewarm, stir in an additional 1-1/2 cups milk and stir gently over medium-low heat. Serve warm, sprinkled with the brown sugar if desired.
This recipe serves 8. We hope this recipe becomes one of your family favorites! Happy Thanksgiving from Pensacola Real Estate Professionals!
