Right now (and often) I have leftover, cooked, long-grain brown rice. I want to make a custard-type rice pudding with it. Favorite recipe, someone?

Last recipe I tried left the rice too starchy. Any ideas? I'm free to use any ingredients, no restrictions. But SIMPLE is best; I hate cooking. No bain-marie, SVP! Thanks, All!

z, have you tried short grain brown rice? I love the chewy nuttiness of it. Same easy prep. Not your request, but here's my fav entree using leftover short grain rice:

Also, if you have a nearby Trader JOe's, they sell a box of pouches of precooked multigrain that's really neat.

Thanks, Le Bec Fin! As it happens, my son asked if a savoury rice pudding exists, and what a perfect example of an easy and clearly successful recipe. Plus it's a portable lunch for a gluten-free kid. :-)

Savory rice pudding is not particularly common.

A savory dish that uses leftover rice that is very common is fried rice. A billion people on this planet may have fried rice in the next day or two.

Many versions of fried rice reheat superbly in microwave ovens. Unsurprising that billions of cooks on this planet choose to repurpose leftover rice this way.
