Black Rice Pudding with Gingered Rhubarb

Rice pudding is a comforting classic. Our version uses slightly more exotic ingredients than the usual milky white pudding. We cook black rice with coconut milk and top it with a seasonal gingered rhubarb for a dessert that is impressive but easy to execute. This recipe is also great if you or your guests have a gluten allergy or celiac disease, as it's gluten-free when made with the listed ingredients.
