This tasted absolutely fantastic! It was not as creamy as (like a rice pudding) as you would expect and I didn't get that custard layer at the top like the photo shows. That's the only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars. Don't let the lack of creamy/rice pudding texture stop you from making this it's is REALLY REALLY good! Don't get me wrong, despite it having a different texture than expected, the texture was still quite good. Make it, you won't be disappointed.
I tried this recipe tonight as a dessert and it turned out really well. I didn't use powdered milk and substituted 2% with a little half and half to make 1 cup. It didn't turn out as creamy as I had hoped, but I may not have cooked the quinoa enough before baking (I've only made quinoa one other time, so I wasn't entirely sure when it was fully cooked). The taste was really nice, however; just like rice pudding my mom makes. I'll definitely make this again as a way to get more quinoa in my diet.
I LOVE quinoa and have been looking for yummy recipes. This was quite good. I didn't get the custard/quinoa in layers like in the photo. Mine looked like the bottom part only. The taste was really good, a little sweet for me personally. My eldest son loved it, my husband and the other two didn't care for it, but they don't like rice pudding or anything like that. I used 3 eggs (no egg whites) I used 1% milk (no dry milk.) I used chopped pecans instead of almonds and no currants. I will definitely use this recipe again.
My first time ever making any kind of pudding. I give this 5 stars even though mine didn't come out like the pic i.e. with the custardy top. No doubt because I tweaked the recipe a bit. I used 2 whole eggs, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup mix of almond and soy milk and no sprinkled sugar on top, just cinnamon. I liked it when it came out but loved it for breakfast this morning - heated up. Thanks for the easy to follow recipe!
This was a wonderful treat. I used fresh currants instead of dried because I had some. They gave a nice tartness to the sweet dessert. This was my first time using Quinoa and so far I am liking it. Thank you!
This is certainly not healthy. With only 1 cup of quinoa the rest is mostly sugar, eggs and milk.
Healthy and nutritious! I enjoyed it. I added a half-cup of Splenda instead of sugar, which I prefer. I will add this recipe to my cookbook and will make it again. Thanks for sharing.
Super delicious! We came across quinoa after reading Eat This, Not That and we gave it a try. Tips: Wash very, very well. Then toast it using the recipe for toasting quinoa on Zaar. This was sweet and I might try a little less sugar next time, but my 12 y.o. son loved it as is and ate the majority of it. I will definitely be making this again and again!! Thanks for the great recipe!
This was a great dessert! I tweaked the recipe a bit, but stayed mostly the same. Thanks for the recipe!
