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!
