Vegan Meyer Lemon & Ginger Rice Pudding

Vegan Meyer Lemon & Ginger Rice Pudding

Rice pudding is a classic comfort food, and with its usual base of milk and eggs, many people who are switching to vegan assume it’s one of the dishes they’ll have to say good-bye to. This version, made with coconut milk, tastes remarkably the same. We’ve added the tangy goodness of Limoneira® Meyer lemon and a kiss of ginger for a new version of an old favorite.

  • 1 Limoneira® Meyer lemon zest & juice
  • 1 cup whole grain rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can coconut milk 14 ounces
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 cup golden sugar


  • Juice the lemon into a saucepan, add the water and bring to boil.
  • Wash the rice thoroughly, and add it to the pot as the liquid boils.
  • Cover and reduce the heat, allowing the rice to cook for about 20 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. The rice should be soft at this point.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat, and allow the rice to cool for a few minutes.
  • Stir in the coconut milk, ginger, lemon zest, and sugar.
  • Return to the burner, and cook for another 20 minutes or so, stirring occasionally.
  • The pudding will be creamy and quite thick when it's ready.
  • Serve immediately.
