Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
Place all the ingredients in a large baking dish (I used one measuring 26 cm (10 inch) by 18 cm (7 inch) and 7 cm (2 1/2 inch) tall)
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, until rice is cooked and the top starts to brown slightly
Can be enjoyed immediately if you want to eat it hot, but it's also delicious cold
Keeps in the fridge for up to a few days
Important note on the recipe
This Rice Pudding will be quite liquidy/runny when you take it it out the oven. It will thicken up quite a bit as it cools down and is very thick when cold, especially after it's been left in the fridge overnight. However, if you prefer it to be thick as soon as you take it out of the oven, I would suggest using less plant-based milk than the recipe calls for!
