Have you tried Orzo Pudding instead of Rice Pudding?

Finding the cupboard bare (no arborio or pudding rice) but needing a pudding fix good old google came to the rescue with a simple search of ‘orzo, dessert’. Orzo pudding was the outcome and I actually prefer it to rice pudding now.

Ingredients (for 1 person who likes a decent portion):

  • 50 grams orzo pasta
  • 250ml no sugar almond milk (or milk or your choice). Add water if it need extra cooking time.
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp no added sugar jam
  • option vanilla essence
  • optional ground cinnamon


  • Put the pasta and milk into a pan, bring to the boil, stirring frequently.
  • . Turn down to simmer for fifteen minutes or until as firm as you like it.
  • Whilst pasta is cooking whisk the egg yolk, egg and sweetener together.
  • When the pasta is cooked whisk or firmly stir the egg/sweetener mix into the cooked pasta.
  • Take of the heat and serve with any extras you want. I went for jam. I have mentioned vanilla essence and ground cinnamon. You could put some nice fruit on top.
