2 1/2 cups of whole milk
1 Tbls. Matcha green tea powder
1/3 cup of long or short grain white rice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins
Stir Matcha green tea powder in milk until dissolved. In a medium saucepan, combine Matcha milk mix, rice and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and brown sugar until well mixed. Add a half cup of the rice mixture - a Tablespoon at a time - beating to incorporate.
Add egg mixture back into the saucepan of rice and milk and stir, on low heat, for 10 minutes or so, until thickened. Be careful not to have the mixture come to a boil at this point. Stir in the vanilla. Remove from heat and stir in the raisins and cinnamon. Serve warm or cold. Serves 2-3. Also see sugar free pudding recipe.
