Are you looking for a unique vegan dessert recipe? Check out this delicious, vegan-friendly Arroz con Dulce recipe that is perfect for any occasion!

  • 1 1/2 medium-grain rice (soaked in water for 90 minutes)
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup raisins or sultanas (soaked in water for 15 minutes)
  • 1 can coconut condensed milk
  1. In a large bowl add the rice and enough cold water to cover the rice. Let it soak for 90 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, Caldero, or Dutch oven over medium-high heat bring to boil 4 cups of water. Add cloves, cinnamon, ginger, anise, and salt. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes to infuse.

  3. Remove and discard spices. Reserve infused water in the saucepan. Add rice, raisins, and coconut cream. Stir to combine, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. If your rice is uncooked, add 1/4 cup of water at a time until is done.

  4. Once the rice is cooked, turn off the heat and add coconut condensed cream. Fold to combine. Pour into serving dishes, cover tightly, and chill for a few hours or overnight.

  5. Garnish with cinnamon and enjoy! Buen provecho!
