When life gives you leftover Chinese takeout rice, make leftover Chinese takeout rice pudding! Seeing as most on-campus stores don’t carry many top-quality ingredients, we took what’s easy to find—instant vanilla pudding and nondairy creamer—and made do.

What to buy: Instant vanilla pudding mix and powdered, hazelnut-flavored nondairy creamer can be found in most supermarkets.

This recipe was featured as part of our story on dorm cooking.


  1. 1Dissolve pudding mix, nondairy creamer, and salt in water in a medium-size microwave-safe dish. Add rice and stir to coat.
  2. 2Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes or until hot. Remove cover, stir to combine, and let sit for 5 to 7 minutes to allow rice to soak up liquid. Serve.
