Quinoa Pudding

Deluxe Quinoa Pudding

This is an extra special quinoa pudding made from my favorite grain that as we now know is really a seed. You can simply cook it on top of the stove in a pot till it is the consistency you like,  but baking it makes it extra yummy! The raisins and dried apricots add a very tasty sweetness. I love pecans and that is what for me makes it a deluxe pudding. You can use other nuts if you prefer.
