Plant-Based Rice Pudding "Arroz Con Leche"

Do you miss comfort foods because of your food sensitivities? I do! There were times when I couldn't go to sleep without having a warm cup of milk. Those times are long gone.

Arroz con Leche (rice pudding) was a comforting afternoon snack in Colombia. As my autoimmune conditions started to pile up, so did my food intolerances, including fluid milk. Arroz con Leche, especially, brings back the most pleasant memories with my grandparents on a rainy day.

My lovely niece and I love cooking together. She asked, "Tía, let's make Arroz con Leche," and sure, she found a suitable plant-based and dairy-free option on Pinterest. I tweaked the recipe to make it ideal for fellow autoimmune warriors. A little bit of sweetness and comfort can also be part of anti-inflammatory eating and lifestyle.
