Brown rice has a bit of a reputation for being tough to cook, but this rice pudding couldn’t be simpler. The end result is worth the long, slow cook – it falls apart with a gentle suck, collapsing into an ambrosial creamy nursery food that’s a heart-soothing remedy for the bleakest of days.


  • 1 litre water
  • 160 g brown rice
  • 700 ml


Measure the water into a large saucepan, preferably a nonstick one, and place it on your largest hob ring. Bring it to the boil.

Pour in the brown rice, then move the pan to the smallest hob ring. It seems a bit of a faff, I know, but it will give you the best results. Pour in half of the milk, then add the honey, cinnamon and nutmeg, if using.

Simmer on the lowest heat for 30 m
