Arroz Con Leche (Rice with Milk)
- CKD non-dialysis
Rinse rice with tap water, then drain.
Add rice and 1 cup water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove lid and stir in milk substitute and raisins. Cover again and boil for 10 minutes or until the rice is well cooked. (Rice will have a soupy consistency; not all the liquid will boil off.)
When rice is done, remove from heat and stir in the sugar or Splenda sugar substitute, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well and serve warm.
Refrigerate leftover portions.
