A twist on a traditional recipe using soya milk to keep the potassium content low and adding prunes and pears for natural sweetness.


300g pudding rice

1200ml organic soya milk

410g tin prunes in juice

410g tin pears in juice

1 lemon

½ teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Step 1

    Add the soya milk and rice to a large saucepan and stir while you bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is soft.

  2. Step 2

    Stir occasionally, scraping the bottom of the pot with a spoon to remove any rice that sticks.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile drain the juice from the tinned prunes and pears, discard the juice. Put the fruit into a saucepan with the ginger. Cut and add the juice of the lemon to the fruit.

  4. Step 4

    Heat fruit until it breaks down to a thick sauce. Once cooked serve the rice pudding with a tablespoon of fruit on top.
