It’s a real joy to reach into the fridge for prepared ingredients and pull together a new dish in no time flat. If you’ve been following along, you’ll know I made extra rice for the smoked turkey gumbo on Day 2 and was left with orange sugar syrup from yesterday’s candied orange peels, so I added just a few staples and came up with this quick, elegant rice pudding.
The orange flavor wasn’t assertive at all, but the scent was divine. To send it over the top, add a little orange flower water.
Garnish individual cups with a sprinkle of cinnamon, add a few candied orange peels, and you could serve this to guests who’d never know they were eating leftovers. Hah!
The tiny cups are perfect for portion control, but determined eaters don’t let them stand in the way. We absolutely demolished this and I hope you will, too.
