    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the quinoa in a sieve and wash it well under cold running water. Drain and place in a pot with 2 cups cold water. Bring to a boil, cover, lower heat, and boil gently until all the water is absorbed, and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Measure 2 cups cooked quinoa and to it add the apple juice, raisins, nuts, lemon juice, and pinches of cinnamon and salt to taste.
    3. 3
      Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
    5. 5
      Chill. Serve plain, or with berries or sliced banana or a little maple syrup if you want it sweeter.

      This is a great sweet healthy desert! I added a little coconut milk to mine and it was heaven on a spoon!

      I love quinoa and love it in sweet dishes. This was really good when I didn't have a bite of raisins in it, but it was much too sweet with them. They almost ruined the whole dish for me, I had to eat around them. Even my 2 raisin-loving children thought it was too much. If I make this again, no raisins.

      I had serious doubts about this recipe but you never know until you try and I'm glad I gave sweetened quinoa a whirl. I loved this with fresh honey-sweetened sliced strawberries. Only thing I would change is to reduce the vanilla to one teaspoon; too overpowering for my taste. This is not a pretty pudding so the fresh fruit perks it up tremendously. I'm having this for breakfast tomorrow, Tweaker. Love those walnuts and golden raisins.
