Quinoa Pudding

A super-healthy but unbelievably delicious pudding which can be served hot or cold. Eat it as a pudding or a super healthy breakfast. It stores well in the fridge so make up a big batch and eat over a few days. From Andrew Weil’s 8 Weeks to Optimum Health.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped mixed nuts
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • cinammon to taste
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • maple syrup

Method

  1. Put the quinoa in a sieve and wash it well under cold running water to remove the bitter coating. Drain and put in large saucepan with 2 cups cold water. Bring to boil, cover, lower the heat and simmer until all the water is absorbed and surface starts to ‘pit’, about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the apple juice, raisins, nuts, lemon juice and pinch of cinammon to taste. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Serve hot or cold. Can add sliced bananas or berries, or my favourite – serve hot with a dash of maple syrup and vanilla ice cream (low fat, of course).
