January 23, 2018


Quinoa Pudding



1 cup quinoa, cleaned (6oz)

6 cups water

2 eggs

2egg whites

1 cup whole milk

1 tsp vanilla

¾ cup sugar plus

1 tbsp sugar

⅛ tsp salt

¼ cup slivered or chopped almonds

¼ cup dried currents

¼ tsp cinnamon



Place quinoa in a bowl of water. Begin the cleaning by rubbing the grain together between your hands. Drain and repeat several times. You will know quinoa is clean when the water is no longer milky after rubbing. This step is essential for removing the bitter layer that surrounds the grain.


Bring quinoa and 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until grains are translucent, 13-15 mins. Drain well in a sieve.


Preheat oven to 350° F.


Whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla, ¾ cup sugar and salt in a large bowl until combined.

Mix in quinoa, nuts and currents. Pour into buttered 9-inch square baking pan.


Stir together cinnamon and remaining tablespoon sugar and sprinkle over top of pudding.

Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 min.


Makes 9 servings
