Luxurious Brown Rice Pudding

This brown rice pudding, and the creamy sauce that goes with it, is gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, and egg-free – and it tastes great!

Brown rice has many health benefits filled with lots of vitamins and minerals. I consider it a smart carb and a powerfood.

This recipe is a favorite dessert of mine that has gone through many changes through the years. I often do not even bake it! I just cook it on top of the stove in a pot until it is the consistency I like.
