There are so many ways to prepare arroz con leche. This time, I'm sharing with you a seasonal recipe I like to prepare as a Thanksgiving dessert: pumpkin arroz con leche. Since I usually have a little bit of pumpkin puree leftover from preparing pies, flan and soufflés, I like to add it to my arroz con leche as well and add this recipe to my repertoire of pumpkin recipes to serve during the holidays.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 7.5 ozs pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • Orange zest for garnish
  • Pepitas for garnish

Directions

  • 1
    In a heavy saucepan, combine milk, salt, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon over medium heat. Bring to a slow simmer.
  • 2
    Add rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Let simmer, stirring occasionally until rice is tender; approximately 20 minutes.
  • 3
    Uncover and fold in pumpkin puree, sugar and vanilla until completely combined. Cook for 5 more minutes. Cover and remove from heat. Discard cinnamon sticks and cloves. Let cool.
