Savoury Rice Pudding

By • Απρ 10th, 2011 • Category: My recipes

If you have leftover rice and don’t know what to do with it, here is a quick and easy solution which can be served as a side dish.    If you don’t want to eat rice the next day again, you can deep freeze it and use it whenever you like.  I served this side dish with perch, which will be posted soon,  separately.

If you don’t have graviera, you can substitute it with halloumi or feta, if you like.

Savoury Rice Pudding, recipe by Ivy

Preparation time:  10 minutes
Baking time:  about 15 minutes
Serves:  4


2 eggs
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest
4 tsp butter or margarine
2 cups cooked long grained rice
1 cup graviera cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup extra graviera
1 tsp bread crumbs to sprinkle on top


Grease the ramekins using about 1/2 tsp butter for each.

In a bowl mix the rice, cheese and eggs.  Add salt and pepper, mix and divide the mixture in the ramekins.

Add the remaining butter (about ½ tsp) on top, half of the graviera.

Preheat oven at 180o C / 350oF.

Place in ramekins in a double bath (fill your baking tin with warm water) and bake  for five minutes until the butter on top melts.  Mix the remaining cheese with the bread crumbs and sprinkle on top.

Bake for another ten minutes or until golden.

Serve while still hot.

Here is another original recipe of mine, called Rozotto, which is a Vegan Rice Pudding with Rose Cordial, posted today on my blog Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours, of Cyprus, Kopiaste!

is I was born in Limassol, Cyprus and being married to a Greek, we now live in a small village near Nafplion. I spend most of my time cooking, photographing and publishing my recipes on my blogs Kopiaste (in English and Greek), which I started in August 2007 to pursue my passion in food. I am the author of cookbook "Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste!", a compilation of 150 Cypriot family recipes, available on all Amazon stores. The book is also available as an e-book. My new cookbook "Greek Delights" with over 250 recipes is also available on Amazon.
