Risotto... rice pudding!

Last night for dinner I made a simple, but delicious honey garlic balsamic chicken that I found online.  It was nice and savory... but then I started craving something a little on the sweet side.

I was looking through my bookmarked recipes on Pinterest, and remember a risotto rice pudding I'd seen.  A risotto rice pudding with brown sugar and vanilla, to be exact!  (Recipe from Joy the Baker)

I've attempted risotto before, and I find the stirring to be daunting... but rewarding in the end.  This rice pudding made with arborio rice was warm, delicious, and filling.  I added oat bran (to make it a tad healthier) as well as a pinch of pumpkin pie spice to the original recipe.  I also sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top.  Yum!

Pretty good for a weeknight at home.

(Oh, and I reheated some for breakfast today... and it was even more delicious than I remembered!)  :-)
