There are many different buzz words that explain this phenomenon: flexitarian, semi-vegetarian, and week day vegetarian; where you only eat meat on the week-ends. But anyway you want to say it, you are cutting back on the meat you eat. Some do it for health reasons, animal rights, the environment or all of the above!

Black Rice Pudding

1 cup forbidden rice
4 C. half and half 
1 cup  coconut milk 
2/3 cup  sugar


Stir together half and half, coconut milk and sugar in a large, heavy saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and cook, stirring until the mixture is very warm and the sugar has dissolved.  Mixture should be very sweet, you can add more sugar if needed. You can use less if you don't want it really sweet. 
Pour the mixture over the rice, stir well being careful not to smash the grains of rice. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours or on high for 3 hours. The pudding will bubble and the rice will be very soft. Turn the cooker off and let the pudding sit for 30 minutes before serving. 


Serve in individual bowls, can top with cut up fruit.
