People are dropping like flies this flu season, but Dr. Cookie has the answer!
If you don’t have Dr. Cookie’s cookbook, then you really need to pick one up.
Dr. Cookie has an amazing collection of low calorie treats, including this easy rice pudding recipe - the perfect comfort food for my sick family.
I had fun with this recipe.
I’m a big saver of cups of rice. They often find their way to the freezer for later use, and as luck would have it, this cup of rice included a colorful black rice.
The addition of chopped walnuts and black rice made for a creamy comfort food treat for my ailing family.
I hope your loved ones have managed to avoid this flu season, but if not, treat them to Dr. Cookie’s remedy. I promise they’ll feel better soon.
Happy, healthy cooking!
* Cook’s Note – I wasn’t careful when I measured the rice, so it had a denser texture and could have been creamier. I’ll be making it again, and the next time I’ll watch my measurements.
