    Chef #1354715's Note:

    This recipe is more creating a milk from quinoa. Quinoa, a "grain" from South America ('tis actually a seed), is a great source of Iron and calcium, as well as being a complete protein. This makes it a good choice for individuals who (for whatever reason) do not consume dairy products. The recipe is based off of the one found here: http://www.kimmykokonut.com/2008/05/22/teaching-and-cooking-in-peru-with-food-pictures/ Please note: this milk has a consistency of thin porridge before straining. After straining, depending on the amount of water added, it should have a consistency of rice milk. This milk has a nutty flavor. It tastes a bit like unsweetened soy milk. You can of course, add sweeteners and flavorings to your quinoa milk (I recommend almond extract) so you can probably get it to a taste that is very similar to commercially purchased rice or almond milk. Good luck!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup white quinoa (for color of the final milk. Pink milk= nasty!)
    • water, as needed (filtered if desired)
    • 1 pinch salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      1. Place the uncooked quinoa in a fine-mesh seive and wash, wash, wash it. Why? Quinoa seeds have a bitter coating called saponin that you want to wash off.).
    2. 2
      2. Put the washed quinoa into a glass container with a lid. Cover the seeds with water, put the lid on it, pop it in the fridge overnight.
    3. 3
      3. The next morning, pour the soaked quinoa into a seive and wash it again.
    4. 4
      4. Put the quinoa into a pot with 2 cups fresh water (not the water it soaked in) and a pinch of salt. Bring it to a boil, covered.
    5. 5
      5. Turn the heat down and simmer the quinoa (covered) until all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      6. place the cooked quinoa in a blender with 2 more cups of water.
    7. 7
      7. Blend on high for 1 mkinute, then add water until the milk reaches your desired consistency. You would add any desired sweeteners and flavorings at this point.
    8. 8
      8. Strain the quinoa milk through a fine cheesecloth (a clean napkin will do) into a bowl. Note that, even with the straining, there will still be flecks of quinoa in the milk. These will settle out later, so don't worry.
    9. 9
      9. Pour the quinoa milk into a clean quart-size jar, and stick it in thew fridge to cool.
    10. 10
      Note that the milk may seperate a little. This is okay. Just give it a little stir.
    11. 11
      The milk will keep about a week, unless you freeze it (I guess you could freeze it? I've never tried.).
    12. 12
      Happy quinoa-milk making!
