Quinoa Pudding Recipe

A couple of months ago I wondered if you could make pudding or dessert with quinoa. Yes, I wonder ridiculous things like this – solving the world’s problems one food idea at a time.

Anyway, in addition to cooking with quinoa I’ve enjoyed quinoa granola and hot breakfast cereals so dessert was the next natural step. Right? Duh!

I found some great inspiration recipes and wanted to share my current fave. It’s super simple and reminiscent of rice pudding.

Quinoa Pudding
1 Banana
1c Milk (I used almond)
1/3c Quinoa
2/3c Water
1TBSP Sugar
1tsp Earth Balance/Butter
Pinch of Salt
1TBSP vanilla (or to taste)
1-2TBSP Cinnamon (or to taste)

Rinse and drain quinoa then cook in water according to package.

Combine remaining ingredients (except butter) in a food processor or blender. Add to the cooked pot of quinoa and stir to combine over medium heat. Add butter and serve when smooth.

Makes 4 servings.

Keep leftovers in a tightly sealed container and warm in microwave for 30-60seconds before eating.

I’ve been loving this as dessert but it would also be a great breakfast, waaay better than oatmeal. Hope you enjoy!
