    Coconut and Cardamom Rice Pudding

    This delicate, creamy pudding relies on the natural sweetness of coconut milk rather than refined sugar. It's delicious on its own, with a fruit compote, or try adding fresh berries to the rice while it cooks. This is dairy-, gluten-, wheat-, soya-, egg- and nut-free.

    Serves: 6


    • 75g pudding rice
    • 10-12 cardamom pods, very gently bruised with the end of a rolling pin
    • Slivers of lemon or lime zest pared from ½ lemon or 1 small lime
    • 600ml coconut milk


    1. Preheat the oven to 150°C, gas mark 2.
    2. Put the rice into a shallow baking dish with the cardamom and citrus zest. Add the coconut milk and mix gently.
    3. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally to ensure the cardamom is well buried and can release as much flavour as possible. After an hour, uncover the dish then cook for 30-45 minutes more, or until the rice is soft. Serve warm or at room temperature.
