    WicklewoodWench's Note:

    Whether for breakfast or dessert, you can completely justify the butterscotch in this dish because of the protein packed quinoa. I always use Dib's recipe for toasted quinoa #16399 it is perfect for this recipe as the nuttiness produced by toasting compliments perfectly the butterscotch flavour. Update: I've tried to correct the fluid amount several times without success(editing glitches) but it is supposed to read; 150 ml water and 30ml milk.

      The flavor of this dish was amazing. In reality, though, it is very heavy and very sweet even for dessert. I doubled the recipe and only used 1.5 ounces of butter and sugar and it was still very sweet. I will have to continue to adjust that in the future. I often use evaporated milk, but for this recipe I may go to regular milk and reduce the sugar (but not the butter) a little more. I grilled some pineapple tidbits and placed them on top. I also think banana would go nicely. Thanks, WicklewoodWench. I will try this again.

      First, let me say this is DELICIOUS! I think I have found my favorite way to eat quinoa. I contacted the chef because my first attempt went a little off due to the amount of liquid needed (according to WW it's actually 150 ml water and 30 ml milk). My first attempt went something like this: 500 ml water, 300 ml 1% milk and a simmer of about 45 minutes. It never got more firm than a soup, but the flavor was divine (and the grain had a wonderful creaminess from the long simmer time). My 2nd attempt was with 150 ml water, 30 ml 1% milk and a 15-minute simmer time. This time the grain came together like oatmeal. It had a pleasant chewiness and the butterscotch flavor was fantastic. I'm think in the future I'll mix it up with the amount of time I simmer (depending on the level of creaminess I want--or how long I'm willing to stand over the stovetop and stir! Both times I used toasted quinoa and I loved the flavor. WicklewoodWench, thanks for posting, and for responding for my request for help, I'm so glad I tried this recipe!

      This was really delicious! I also used toasted quinoa, and it turned out very tasty. I only had regular milk, but it worked fine.
