While I've made many a more complicated black rice pudding recipes, felt like doing it the simple way today.
Boil 1 C black rice in 3 C water until done (about 30-40 minutes?) stirring a couple times and making sure it doesn't boil over.
In a blender, whiz until combined into a milky beverage:
1/4 C unsweetened coconut
4 medjool dates, pitted
chunk of vanilla bean
2 C water
Once the rice is done, spoon what you want into a bowl. Pour the coconut mylk over and enjoy!
