Rice pudding

Rice pudding is something we eat a lot of in Sweden for Christmas but I like making it as a special treat too. I like raisins in my rice pudding and I like it made with a hint of whipped cream to make it specially fluffy and rich.

¼ cup raisins
½ cup white basmati rice
2 cups almond milk
2 tbsp. agave nectar
½ tsp. salt
½ vanilla beans, seeds scraped
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ cup Mimic whipped topping
Combine rice, almond milk, agave nectar, salt, vanilla bean seeds, cinnamon, and cardamom in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Reduce to a simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring often. Rice is done when it’s soft. Let it cool for 5 minutes and then fold in whipped topping and raisins.
