Quinoa Pudding

I love trying new desserts, especially when they are even remotely healthy.  I heard a news story this week about arsenic levels in rice.  I really enjoy rice and cook it often.  

I am a HUGE fan of Lundberg Family Farms rice.  In full disclosure, I have won a few free items from Lundberg, but this is because I love their products and watch their website closely.  Lundberg has created a section of their website devoted to answering consumer questions regarding this issue. I suggest you check it out if you have questions regarding the safety of rice.  

Today, I am making  a recipe where rice is traditionally used, but giving it a new twist.  If rice pudding is good, quinoa pudding must be better, right?  So here is the recipe!  You will notice the photos feature a caramel sauce on the pudding; I will post this recipe later in the week! 

Quinoa Pudding
adapted from

3 c skim milk
2 t vanilla extract
1/4 c sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 c water
1/4 t cinnamon
1 c quinoa, well rinsed

Combine milk, vanilla, sugar, salt, water and cinnamon in a covered saucepan.  Bring to a boil and add the quinoa.  

Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the quinoa in a semi-covered pan (just a little bit vented) for 30 minutes.  

Cool and pour into parfait or other glasses.  Makes four servings.  

This is a yummy, warm treat for a fall day.
