  • 3/4 cup Arborio rice, rinsed
  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine rice, milk, vanilla bean and seeds, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until rice is tender and liquid has absorbed, about 40 to 45 minutes.

  2. Remove vanilla bean; stir in orange zest and heavy cream. Rice pudding may be served at room temperature or chilled.
