"From "Eight Weeks to Optimal Health". I haven't tried it yet but want to post it for safekeeping. Dr Weil says: Here is an unusual, healthy dessert made from the staple grain-like seed of the high Andes, now available in specialty food shops and health-food stores."

"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."
