Non-fat quinoa pudding

Quinoa pudding is just like rice pudding but uses quinoa as the main ingredient. Quinoa often called a superfood, because it contains all nine essential amino acids, making it one of the few vegetarian sources of a complete protein. It’s also full of vitamin B2 and magnesium.But enough about its health benefits – quinoa pudding is a great whole grain dessert. For the non-fat version of this recipe, replace the 3 eggs with ⅓ cup of egg whites. For the low-sugar version of this recipe, omit the raisins.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup raisins (optional)
  • 3 cups + ½ cup skim milk or soy milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten (or ⅓ cup egg whites)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup Splenda® or sweetener to equal ¾ cups sugar




Directions

  • Bring the uncooked quinoa and water to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes. (Alternatively, cook the quinoa in a rice cooker the same way you would cook rice.)
  • Add the raisins and 3 cups of milk to the cooked quinoa. Bring to a boil over medium heat, uncovered, being careful not to let the milk boil over.
  • Reduce heat to low and gently simmer for 20 minutes. As the quinoa cooks, the grains absorb the milk.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, Splenda® or sweetener, and ½ cup of remaining milk to the quinoa/milk mixture. Simmer for 2 more minutes.
