Quinoa Pudding

Quinoa PuddingI tried making rice pudding but with quinoa instead. It tasted the same, but  the texture is a little chewier, much like quinoa is over rice – think more like tapioca. But since this is a nutrition packed snack I will be making it again. For a treat I might make it with 2% or homogenized milk instead of the skim.

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups cooked quinoa
2 cups of milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Over medium heat in a pot cook 1 ½ cups of milk, the sugar and the quinoa stirring occasionally, careful not to let the milk froth over (especially when you have black glass stove top!) for about 20 minutes. In a small bowl whisk egg and reaming ½ cup of milk together, add into pot along with raisins. Stir continuously for the next minute. Add in vanilla and an optional teaspoon of butter and stir. Serve warm or allow to cool and sprinkle with cinnamon. If you are positive everyone will like the cinnamon then just add it in while you are cooking – but it looks nicer when you sprinkle it on top! Enjoy!

  1. I might suggest making this tasty sounding dish with Almond Milk to add a slightly nuttier flavour and creamier texture

  2. I left out the egg to keep it dairy free, used almond milk and added a generous sprinkle of cinnamon to the milk, tossed in some raisins and also some chia seed since I have a bunch to incorporate. Not bad at all. The almond milk is a thicker base than the skim and gives it a nice nutty flavour.
