Cranberry and banana rice pudding

    25 min

    This could really be called a sweet risotto as it uses risotto rice. The starchy grains are ideal as they create a creamy-textured milk pudding in less than 20 minutes. Rather than sweetening it with lots of sugar, it is simmered with dried bananas and cranberries, both of which add natural sweetness.

    1. Pour the milk into a heavy-based saucepan and add the rice, vanilla pod, sugar, cranberries and bananas. Stir to mix. Bring to the boil over a moderate heat, stirring constantly, then turn the heat down so the mixture is gently simmering. Cook, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes or until the pudding has a creamy consistency and the rice is tender.
    2. Remove the vanilla pod from the pudding. Spoon the rice pudding into the centre of large flat soup plates. Drizzle with a few spoonfuls of the coulis and decorate with scented geranium leaves, if liked. Serve the remainder of the coulis separately.
