1 Split vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla essence or 1 bay leaf
120 g Arborio rice
1 ts Cornflour

Variations

For baked rice pudding, pour the cooked rice mix into a buttered oven dish and dot the top with a little butter then cook at 180 C until the top is crusty and golden - takes about 20 minutes.

For breakfast have the rice hot with poached peaches and a sprinkle of brown sugar for great energy food on cold mornings.

Heat apricot or plum jam with a little water to make a yummy topping for your pudding.

Add sultanas and mixed peel to the rice before cooking for an Easter version.

For a truly decadent variation, let the rice cool and then fold through whipped cream and toasted almonds.
