Tesco Value Creamed Rice Pudding
Advantages: cheap to buy, nice taste
I like to have a tin of rice pudding for tea sometimes when I am not in the mood to cook anything or I have had a meal out lunch time. I usually buy the Ambrosia Creamed rice but spotted this Tesco Value tin whilst shopping and thought at the price of just 18p a tin I would give it a try.
The tin is the same size as any other normal size tin of rice pudding, it says on the tin that its 425g. The label is the normal white Tesco Value label with the little blue lines at the top and red band around it.
On opening the tin you can see that the pudding comes right up to nearly the top of the tin which is good for a value tin and you can also see the rice at the top, not like the value baked beans where the top half is just sauce.
It smells nice and creamy and when you tip it out into a bowl it is really thick and looks like there is a lot to it. I don't think I could eat a whole tin so am just going to try half for now.
It says on the back of the tin that you can hot it up in the microwave if you place it in a microwaveable bowl and coer it but leave a vent. I put some cling film over mine and pierced a hole in it. Then you have differnt cooking times depending on what power your microwave oven is. for 650 watts, heapt on full power for 1 1/2 mins then stir and recover and heat for another 1 1/2 mins then leave it to stand for 1 min. For 750 watts heat on full power for 1 1/2 mins then stir etc and heat again for 1 min then let it stand for 1 min. For 850 watts hear on full for 1 min then stir etc and heat again for another 1 min then let it stand for 1 min.
Our microwave is more powerful than 850 so I just put it on for 30 seconds, then stirred and did another 30 seconds and let it stand and it was hot enough.
If you don't have a microwave or just prefer to use the hob then you can tip the rice pudding into a sauce pan and heat it up gently for 4 - 5 minutes stirring frequently. You musn't let it boil.
You could of course just eat the rice pudding cold which is lovely in the summer with some fresh fruit like peaches.
On tasting the hot pudding I found it to be nice and creamy and with a good consistency. It was very filling and I was glad I hadn't hotted up the whole tin at once.
The blurb on the tin says it contains no nuts but they can't guarantee it to be nut free. It also contains milk. It is suitable for vegetarians. The nutritional information for half a can is that it contains 190 cal, 19.1 g sugar, 1.9g fat, 1.1g saturates, 0.3g salt.
All in all I was very impressed with this pudding and will certainly be buying it again.
Summary: Nice cheap product
