Orange Liqueur Rice Pudding

Cooking Light
Arborio rice, the traditional rice for risotto, releases starch as it cooks, yielding a creamy, orange-scented rice pudding. Serve warm or chilled. If you don't have Grand Marnier, substitute Cointreau.
6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup pudding and about 1 1/2 teaspoons nuts)

3 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup uncooked Arborio rice
6 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted pistachios


Combine milk, Arborio rice, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place egg in a medium bowl. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot rice mixture into egg mixture; return egg mixture to pan, stirring constantly. Simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes or until mixture is thick and rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; add liqueur, butter, and vanilla, stirring until butter melts. Combine nuts in a small bowl; sprinkle nuts evenly over pudding.
