Arborio Rice Pudding, With Blueberries.

Tuesday is the sweetest day.
This week in Tuesdays With Dorie, Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa chose Arborio Rice Pudding, White, Black (Or Both) on pages 412 and 413 of Dorie's great baking book, Baking: From My Home To Yours. Please see Isabelle's site for the recipe.

I love rice pudding, it is a favourite in our house. This one is nice and light. No eggs, cream or even much sugar.

The choice was ours whether to make the pudding vanilla or chocolate. I chose vanilla, as it is my favourite for rice pudding. I added some blueberries, for colour and a bit of contrast, and sprinkled the top with some maple sugar for a little added sweetness. The rice pudding was very, very good.

I did have to cook the pudding a little longer than Dorie suggested, about ten minutes. It was still soft when I folded in the blueberries but it set up nicely after a few hours in the fridge.

The results were light and sweet and fruity. Practically health food!
