Quinoa Pudding: Move Over Rice

I adapted a recipe from  Cannelle et Vanille.

Quinoa Pudding with Strawberries and Bee Pollen

makes about 8 8 oz servings, with some pudding left over.

6 cups raw milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 cup quinoa

1 lb strawberries, diced
2 Tbsp sugar

local bee pollen

Combine the milk, cream, sugar, salt and extracts in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add the quinoa and stir. Reduce heat to medium low, cover the pot slightly, and cook until the milk reduces and thickens (about 30 minutes). Ladle into bowls or jars.

Place cut strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle them with sugar. Toss them and let them sit at room temperature for about an hour until juices start to come out.

Top the puddings with the strawberries and a sprinkle of bee pollen.
