I don’t’ like rice very much; actually, I’m not a fan of grains, excepting oats. But I do love rice pudding and my mom’s recipe is the best one (I will show you some day). The problem is that it’s too slow to make.
When I need a cup of rice pudding and I don0t have the time to make it, I use cous cous and it’s a really good idea with really good results. It’s very fast and the flavour is exactly the same as rice pudding.
I can tell you it’s much better if served warm because cous cous takes all the liquid and you will end up with a paste. Nevertheless, if you need to refrigerate some, just add a dash of milk or cream and warm it up.
