Quinoa pudding

I'm still on the strict candida diet for another nine days. Most of my symptoms have diminished. That includes the sinusitis and disagreeable stomach.

In the meantime, I'm dreaming of eating some quinoa pudding again. It's easy to make and is scrumptious as a breakfast or for dessert.

Quinoa Pudding (serves 4)

Ingredients:
  1. 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  2. 2 2/3 cups unsweetened hemp milk (or other dairy beverage)
  3. 2 T. powdered stevia
  4. Egg replacer or flax equivalent to 2 eggs
  5. 1/4 tsp. ground cardamon
  6. 1 cup fresh or frozen fruit chopped (Berries would be best choice because they are low glycemic compared to other fruits.)

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, bring quinoa and 1 2/3 cups hemp milk to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 15 minutes or more.
  2. Prepare the egg replacer or flax and whisk together with stevia, cardamon and remaining 1 cup of hemp milk.
  3. Reduce heat to medium low and slowly stir in egg replacer or flax mixture. Stir constantly.
  4. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 20-30 minutes. Stir in fruit if desired.
  5. Place the quinoa pudding in a storage container and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours or up to two days.
  6. Serve garnished with berries or other fruit.
