1/3 cup short grain arborio rice
1/4 cup dried cranberries and 1/8 cup dried apricots, sliced
3 Tbsp sucanat (sugar)
1/2 Tbsp ghee
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp. freshly grated orange zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 egg
3 cups almond milk
pinch of nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°c) Grease a dutch oven or 6 cup casserole dish with some ghee.
2. Sprinkle Rice in the bottom of the dish, add dried fruit, sugar, ghee & coconut oil, orange zest, vanilla and cinnamon.
3. In a small bowl, beat egg and almond milk. Pour over rice and stir. Sprinkle evenly with nutmeg.
4. Bake, uncovered, for about 1 1/4 hours until rice is tender and creamy.

really delicious! you could cut back on the sucanat (sugar) by a 1/2 Tbsp or so if you like. I think next time I make this I might add a couple of cardamom pods before baking!
