  • Put 3 cups rice, and the milk together in a medium saucepan.
  • Cook on medium low for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until thick and creamy.

  • Serve as is, because it is delicious! 
  • To make it a bit more special, add your favorite toppings, such as toasted nuts, raisins, fresh fruit, cinnamon or whipped cream.
