"Where's the Rice?"
Okay I admit this is not made from rice but it can pass for it. It is a pudding made with a vegetable but I am including it as a dessert because it is sweet and you can serve it as a dessert.
Isn't it wonderful what we can do with cauliflower? Try this just once and see
what your family says about it. I bet they like it just as much as the real thing.
1/2 cup finely grated (riced) RAW cauliflower
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup Brown Sugar Twin
4 oz. cream cheese
2 egg yolks
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (option)
Mix 1/4 cup of cream with sweeteners, extracts, spices, and cauliflower.
Heat in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
Let stand for 15 minutes.
Beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup of cream; set aside.
Pour remainder of cream in sauce pan, add cream cheese and cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
Add cauliflower mixture and egg mixture to pan and stir to re-thicken.
Pour into 4 small ramekins or pudding dishes and refrigerate 1-3 hours.
Serve and enjoy!
