Daughter Eilene just got a dental implant and is on soft foods for a few days. She is getting tired of soups, so I thought I would make a savory rice pudding. Looking on-line, I couldn’t seem to find anything that was even close to what I had in mind—herby, super-eggy, and filling.

I keep a wide variety of rice in my pantry—Italian arborio, aged Indian basmati, Spanish Bomba, short grain Japanese rice, Thai Jasmine, Chinese red rice, American wild rice, as well as Californian jasmine and short grain brown rice. Jan has been loving my rice pudding, so when she suggested using Black rice I had it ready to hand. During imperial China, this rice was for the emperor alone.
Tuesday is Jan’s long day, she teaches until 8:45 pm, and she texted that she needed rice pudding when she got home. I live to serve—good food. I started with a Food.com recipe for rice pudding, but I have continued to change it. One of the recipes I had looked at earlier suggested that arborio rice was the best choice. Having made this variation twice now, I must agree.
