Quinoa Pudding– a simple and vegan kheer or pudding recipe with quinoa, coconut milk, raw cane sugar, and strawberries. I used cardamom powder to flavor this, you can use vanilla bean powder as well.
Strawberries are in season and I wanted to use fresh strawberries in this recipe. You can use frozen strawberries or strawberry preserve as well. Just make sure that strawberry preserve doesn’t have artificial additives and sugars.
Quinoa is very rich in protein and has all essential amino acids. It is rich in B vitamins, phosphorous, manganese, and iron. But as it is not native to India, I use it very sparingly in my kitchen. You can use any kind of millets to make this recipe. Sama or little millet suits best for this I guess, will try it and update this post.
You can also use leftover cooked quinoa or cooked millet to make this recipe. Please check this post on how to cook fluffy millet. Quinoa can also be cooked using the same procedure except that quinoa doesn’t need any soaking.
