My Aunt Nancy sent me a bunch of pumpkin recipes! This one comes from a document full of healthy Weight Watchers recipes. There are so many recipes on there so I’m gonna pick and chose which to post and try. I know a lot of people in my family love Rice Pudding so I figured this was a good one to share. If anyone tries it before I do let me know how it is!
Pumpkin Rice Pudding
2 quarts water
1 c. brown rice
4 c. non-fat milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/3 c. sugar subsitute
15 oz can pureed pumpkin

In a heavy, large saucepan, bring water to a boil and
add the rice. Boil, uncovered, for 7 minutes; drain well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the same saucepan, bring
the milk to a boil over medium high heat, stirring
occasionally. Add the vanilla bean, rice, and salt.

until rice is very soft and absorbs most of the milk,
15-18 minutes. Remove from heat, remove add vanilla , and stir in sweetner.
In a large bowl, mix pumpkin with rice pudding. Add cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Spoon pumpkin rice pudding into a sprayed 2 quart baking pan
