Tested till perfect Coconut Ginger Wild Rice Pudding

Coconut Ginger Wild Rice Pudding

Wild rice is native to Canada, and it's an important part of the nation's food history. Using a blend of brown and wild rice, such as Lundberg Wild Blend, gives this classic dessert a
boost of fibre and a slight chewiness. If you love ginger, top the pudding with extra crystallized ginger.

Preparation

In food processor, pulse rice until grains just begin to break up, about 30 seconds.

Stir in coconut milk, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and salt; reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, over very low heat until thick enough to mound on spoon, 20 to 30 minutes.

Spoon into dessert bowls; sprinkle with coconut and pistachios.
