  1. Put the rice and soya milk into a medium-sized saucepan, stir and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat immediately or the soya will bubble up and can easily boil over. Half cover the pan with a lid then cook gently for 40-45 minutes over a very low heat, stirring occasionally until the rice has swollen and is very tender. The mixture should be thick and creamy.
  2. While the rice is cooking, mix together the apricots, sugar and single cream alternative.
  3. Remove the rice from the heat, leave to cool for 15 minutes, then stir in the apricot mixture. Spoon into 4 small tumblers or glass dishes. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes (or longer if you have the time).
  4. To serve, spoon two tbsp of apricot compote or 1 tbsp of conserve on top of each dessert and scatter the pistachios on top.

I made this for my grandson who is allergic to dairy. The 1. time with soya milk, the next time with almond milk. Both worked well but I used a lot more milk then suggested as it would have been too thick. Everyone really enjoyed it.

this was very tasty and a good dairy free alternative but i had to add more milk than was stated as the rice pudding was too thick.
