• 200 g brown rice (short or long)
  • 1 l rice milk (soya milk or dairy milk can be used also)
  • 2/3 tablespoons of brown rice syrup
  • 1 vanilla pod (or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla)
  • 300 ml carton of soya cream
  • 2 fresh mangoes


  • Wash the rice well and place in a heavy based pot along with 750ml of rice milk and the vanilla pod. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally.
  • Lower the heat, place a tight lid on top and simmer 45 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the vanilla pod, slice in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and add to the cooked rice along with the rice syrup.
  • Stir in the soya cream and extra rice milk to create a creamy consistency. Check the sweetness and place in an oven proof bowl.
  • Put in the centre of a pre-heated oven at 190°C (375°F/Gas 5) and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Peel and slice the mango into thin segments. Place the rice pudding in serving bowls and arrange the mango on top.
