Simple organizational help – labeling cans

Don’t know why I didn’t think of this before?! I mainly have drawers in my kitchen instead of a pantry, so I’m mainly looking down and seeing the tops of my cans and then pulling each one up to see what the label is on the side.
So one day, I thought about writing with a sharpie what the can was on top so I could see what I had in my “cupboard” at a cupboard….don’t know why I didn’t think of his before…?


Vegan rice pudding

This was so easy to make!! I had about 2-3cups of left over rice and dodnt know what to do with and was getting pretty bored with some rice dishes. So I decided to change it up and make dessert.

So here is what I did (btw, nothing was measured and I just went for it):

  • 2-3 c of cooked rice
  • Sweeten Silk soy milk
  • Trader Joe’s soy creamer
  • a palmfull of brown sugar
  • 2 cardamon pods
  • 1 clove
  • sprinkling of cinnamon
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • a light dusting of egg replacer (center of pan)
  • a dusting of Arrowroot

I used a 2″ high saucepan and put my stove to 5-medium, bringing the micture to a boil stirring continously. Within out 5 minutes, I could see that the contents were thickening and starting to stick a little = keep stirring. After about 10mins I turned off the stove and left the mixture covered until we were ready for dessert (aprox. 20mins).

*Also, you can take out the clove and cardamon pod before serving. They were pretty easy to find while stirring (when the mixture was hot – FYI).
