This is a cross between rice pudding and tapioca, with more protein than either. The quinoa (pronounced "keen-wah") seed is a plant-based food that supplies you with all nine essential amino acids.

Ingredients

3
cups whole milk (works well with soy or nut milk for a vegan version)
2
tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4
cup maple syrup
Pinch of salt
1
cup quinoa

Directions

  • 1 Rinse quinoa thoroughly to remove any residual resins that might still be on the seeds. Otherwise, the quinoa can be quite bitter.
  • 2 Mix milk, vanilla, maple syrup and salt in a saucepan and set on simmer.
  • 3 Add quinoa and cook for 30 minutes, stirring frequently (but not constantly). Once thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • 4 Serve warm, or refrigerate.
Tips  

Top with your choice of delicious tidbits such as berries, dried fruit, nuts, nutmeg, brown sugar, etc.
