  1. Rinse and drain the quinoa. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Blend together the milk, bananas, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour the milk mixture into the saucepan with the quinoa.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla and serve warm.

I had never tried Quinoa and had only recently heard of it. This was my first try at it. I loved this recipe. The only changes I made were 1% milk, no salt added and sugar in the raw instead ...

Easy to make! I subbed soy milk for cow's milk, and honey for the sugar because of family preferences. This pudding was more like more like tapioca than rice pudding. Next time, I'll try usin...

This was a good way to use quinoa. I added cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg to add some more flavour. I also made it with skim milk and honey and halved the butter to make it a little more healthy.

This was really good, and wonderful to make for my 3 year old who LOVES Quinoa. It didn't thicken after cooking for about 15 minutes after adding the bananas, milk, and honey (instead of sugar)...
