Pudding rice has a soft consistency, and this is a quick and easy recipe. Serve with dried apricot purée, stewed apple and pear, fruit compote, low-sugar strawberry jam or homemade strawberry purée – just cook some strawberries and strain away some of the liquid. Then purée, sieve and stir in a little icing sugar to taste.
