Ingredients

  • 200g pudding rice
  • 600ml skimmed milk
  • big pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp clear honey , plus extra to serve
  • 140g ready-to-eat dried apricot , roughly chopped
  • zest and juice 1 orange
  • 4 tbsp reduced-fat fromage frais
  • handful toasted sliced almonds

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the rice, milk and nutmeg into a large microwaveable bowl. Cover with cling film, pierce it, then cook on High for 5 mins. Stir and leave to stand for 1 min, then return to the microwave for a further 5-6 mins or until the rice is cooked and all the milk absorbed. Remove from the microwave and stand for a further 2 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Put the honey, apricots and orange juice into another microwaveable bowl and cook on High for 1 min until the apricots have plumped up. Stir the syrupy apricots, fromage frais and a pinch of orange zest into the rice. Serve straight away in bowls, topped with a sprinkling of almonds, a little more orange zest and a drizzle of honey to taste.

RECIPE TIPS
