Soy Milk-Arborio Rice Pudding with Poached Figs

Soy Milk-Arborio Rice Pudding with Poached Figs

My mother is a public health person specializing in women and babies and such. What does that mean? It means I knew about condoms before I even knew what they were for and that it’s really super important to breast feed your baby. And that cow’s milk is bad for babies. So what did my brother and I get as babies? Soy milk. As a baby… loved it! Liked it as a kid, too. Somewhere in there, though, and I honestly can’t remember when, I just couldn’t stand soy milk. I don’t care how smooth it is, or what flavor it is, I won’t drink it. It tastes weird, it doesn’t cook the way milk does, and I won’t have it. So you can imagine my devastation when I see the recipe above and think… woah, that’s nice, and find out it’s made with soy milk.

Thankfully, I’m more of an adult about things than I was before and so now I can imagine a world where this recipe is made with regular milk and NOT soy milk. Because soy milk is gross. And while I’m at it, so is almond milk, rice milk, and yes, even the stuff that comes in cartons that they call “coconut milk” which really isn’t. REAL coconut milk is amazing and I love it. All them others are just posers.
