As I was scanning the recipe center to take a look at quinoa recipes I clicked on "add recipe" for a dessert using quinoa and it got blocked by my computer.  I tried three times to no avail.  
So, I will try again at another time to get it into the recipe center.

Here it is:

1 cup red quinoa (well rinsed and drained) Do not skip this step since quinoa has a bitter coating that must be removed before cooking.

2 cups vanilla soy milk
l/4 teaspoon sea salt
l teaspoon ground cinnamon
l/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup dried fruit of your choice
1 teaspoon pure vanillla
l/3 cup dry roasted unsalted sliced almonds


Directions:  Place quinoa, soy milk, salt and cinnamon in a medium saucepan.  Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add maple syrup and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add dried fruit and vanilla.

Cover and let sit for 15 minutes to thicken.  Fluff with a fork , mix in sliced almonds and serve.

It sounds simple, crunchy, and nourishing.  As always, quinoa is good for all blood types but always substitute what is best for your particular blood type.

Sounds great!


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I am currently where they make a certain pudding, I think with some thing like molasses, called sticky buns.. I think it could be made with quinoa as it has no flavor or texture of its own.. like a form of rice pudding.. or even a form of creme broule', if one cared for browned agave and a little burned brandy..    


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I'm on my way to Whole Foods (my local HFS doesn't carry red quinoa but WF's does).  I also picked up some unsalted almond slices and dried cherries.  I have all other ingredients so I will report to you all on how it turns out.

Later....

Where did you find the recipe? And what's it called? Is it a pudding? Is it loose?

I just finished making the red quinoa dessert for the first time.  I started to fret a bit when the recipe called for simmering because there was alot of liquid.   So I would advise others who try it to adjust their stoves accordingly.  My stove has Lo and Med Lo.   I turned it up to Med Lo which was better.

After I took it off the heat and let it sit for 15 minutes per recipe it still had a bit more liquid than it should so I drained it off (the liquid had absorbed all the flavor of the other ingredients so it was alright).   Next time I would put in a little less milk because of all the other liquid ingredients.  

If you like quinoa it is light, a little crunchy, and not too sweet but flavorful.   Better for you than ice cream!

San J - I found this recipe in a healthy living book I was browsing in the library.  There was no other description than dessert.

Well, somehow in the post above I have a double signature.  I'll fix that and in the future when I type in quinoa in the subject I'll spell it correctly.

Also, Whole Foods does not carry red quinoa in the bulk section but it comes packaged.  There were two brands.  One Eden brand that says its 100% certified organic and another brand from Bolivia I think which was a little more expensive.  I got the Eden brand.

The dried fruit gives it that boost of sweetness.  I used dried cherries and it was yummy but I'll try other dried fruits in the future.

I asked because I wondered why you'd want to enter a recipe into the base here, when you'd never made the dish. It's hard, if not impossible, to know if a recipe is worth sharing with everyone if you don't know how it turns out or even if it's loose or what-have-you: Only that it's "a dessert". Don't you think?
Glad that, in the end, you think it's a good one, but also that you couldn't record it until after you'd actually tried it! Serendipity that you couldn't do so? I don't know. But, then again, I've never used the recipe feature myself.  

I do know I've really enjoyed when people have shared with us the recipes of dishes they've actually made and liked. It's one of the nice things about the Forum!
