If you are like me and love rice pudding and tapioca, then you will enjoy Quinoa Pudding too! According to my Trader Joe’s Organic Quinoa box, “it remains an important staple in South American cuisine, as it contains more protein than most other grains”.


This recipe comes from Allrecipes Rice Pudding. I just substituted Quinoa for the rice.

Quinoa Pudding

  • 3/4 cup uncooked Quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups nonfat milk, divided
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 2 T unsalted butter

Bring the Quinoa and water to a boil, cover and reduce heat, cook for 25 minutes or until Quinoa is soft and fluffy.

Stir 1 1/2 cup milk and sugar into the Quinoa and cook until thick and creamy, about 20 minutes.

In a separate bowl mix 1/2 cup of the milk and egg. Stir into Quinoa mixture for two more minutes. Finally stir in the butter and vanilla. Enjoy!


So in addition to running, I am submitting this recipe to Run Swim Bike Cook‘s superfood weekly challenge… using Quinoa in a dessert.
