If you have not used quinoa this is an easy recipe, and very tasty desert.
Quinoa makes a great hot cereal, salad, side dish and deserts.
1cup cooked (1/3 c. raw) = 1 serving
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
Cook the quinoa: (Detailed Instructions)
1 cup quinoa (Available at the Co-Op)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Thoroughly rinse the dry grain until the water runs clear. Combine 1 volume of quinoa with 3 volumes of water and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. You will know that the Quinoa is done when all the grains have turned from white to transparent. I usually don't rinse mine, and they are fine.
To the cooked quinoa add:
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup raisins or any dried fruit will do (Co-Op Dried Fruit)
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
Stir in the condensed milk, butter, and raisins. Cook, stirring
frequently, until the pudding thickens slightly, about 15-20 minutes
We put them into individual small yogurt cups to freeze, so if you need something sweet after dinner or a snack they are ready and will satisfy that hunger without all the guilt. You can serve it in wine glasses and top with a bit of whipping cream and chocolate shavings for an elegant desert to serve to company.
