       Title: Micro Mage’s Creamy Rice Pudding
  Categories: Desserts, Rice
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/2 c  Rice
       2 c  Milk
     1/4 ts Salt
  
   Then stir in:
   
   2 tablespoons butter 3 beaten eggs 3/4 cup sugar 1 1/2 cup milk 1 1/2
   teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
   
   Pour into a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 50
   minutes. Remove from oven and let cool, or chill.
   
   Thicken a little fresh orange juice with cornstarch, sweeten slightly
   and drizzle over the top.
   
   Makes 8 half-cup servings.
   
   And here’s something else good, adapted from a recipe in SUNDAYS AT
   MOOSEWOOD RESTAURANT:
   
   Keywords; desserts, fruit
   
   2 c. mixed dried fruit (apricots, pears, prunes, apples, etc.) 3 or
   more c. fruit juice (I like pineapple or apricot) 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 1
   tsp. cinnamon pinch of clove (optional) 3 tbsp. quick-cooking tapioca
   1 c. heavy cream 1 tsp. vanila a little honey if desired (go
   lightly--this dish shouldn't be icky-sweet)
   
   Core and coarsely chop pears, but leave other fruit uncut. Stew fruit
   and the spices on low heat in 3 c. fruit juice  for about 1/2 hr.
   Drain, reserving liquid.
   
   Measure reserved juice; if it doesn't equal 2 cups, add more. In a
   saucepan, stir tapioca into juice and let stand 5 min. Bring to a
   boil and cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from
   heat and let stand for 20 min. Combine tapioca mixture and fruit, and
   sweeten to taste with honey. Chill.
   
   Just before serving, whip the cream with the vanilla and a tablespoon
   of honey till stiff.  Layer pudding and cream in dessert dishes.

   ÄÄÄÄ ÄÄÄ -> We like to add things to basic rice, for variety. But I
   would like t -> some rice recipes that are actually the whole meal,
   but fairly -> healthy, not  cream soup type.
   
   Okay, as promised, here are a couple:
