Like another reviewer, I tried to sub peanut butter for the tahini, but next time it will be worth getting the right stuff. I added the honey, then a bit more Splenda to sweeten this more for the kids and my husband. I quite enjoyed this, and my 2 year old gobbled up a ton of it, but the boys in the family didn't care for the quinoa itself. My husband doesn't like the "earthy" grain flavor, so I might toast it next time I try this. Thanks for sharing, as I'm trying to find different uses for the impulse bag of quinoa I picked up with no idea how to use it!

This was a yummy treat. I used peanut butter instead of tahini, and I used the honey option. Like a previous reviewer, I found it unnecessary to add kudzu or arrowroot. After tasting, I added a LOT more honey and cinnamon to give it the flavor I wanted. I normally don't like things too sweet, but the quinoa has a very distinct taste that I think calls for a lot more sweetness to balance it out. After I got it how I wanted it, I found it to be a delightful alternative to rice pudding. And I never would have thought of it on my own (although I love quinoa), so thank you for posting.

This is so good! I love the nutty taste of quinoa and it worked great in a pudding. I love rice pudding, but I hardly ever make it because it's so unhealthy what with the cream and sugar. I used 1% cow's milk and found I didn't really need the thickener, but I used it anyway. I didn't change anything else. It tastes so healthy yet so satisfying, I ate it for breakfast a couple of times. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

This was my first attempt at using quinoa-turned out nice! I made an eighth of the recipe & it only took about 1 min to cook since it was such a small portion. I found that the cornstarch & water weren't really neeeded; it was thick enough for me already. I used cinnamon & applesauce for the butter-topped with some banana. It smelled kind of "grainy" cooking but it tasted good!

Very interesting, and easy to make! Just ate this with my FUSSY 19 month old...she ate it! Love the health value, and I enjoyed this as well - I would eat it for breakfast with fruit. Thanks so much!
