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”.
- 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!
