Chocolate stirred into rice and coconut milk makes a comforting treat. A traditional breakfast dish, it is also a delicious dessert if chilled.

What You'll Need

  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cups
  • Medium saucepan with lid
  • Whisk or fork
  • Small bowls

Directions

  1. Rinse rice. Combine with water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Brown rice may need 10-15 minutes more to soften completely.)
  2. When rice is soft, add cocoa powder, coconut milk and sweetener. Whisk to combine, then cover and simmer gently for 5 minutes. If needed, stir in a small amount of water to thin, as this dish should be slightly more watery than rice pudding.
  3. Serve warm, or transfer to small bowls and chill.

Chef Tips

  • Add 1 or 2 wide ribbons of orange peel to the rice as it cooks to infuse it with a hint of tropical fruitiness.
